100% of every public donation is used to fund a clean water project.
We know that every dollar you invest in our work is hard earned and thoughtfully given, so we commit 100% of every donation to a project. We maximize the impact of your donation by leveraging gifts from like-minded individuals, foundations and companies to cover important operational expenses. We call this community of people and organizations The Water Council.
WE BELIEVE THAT BY WORKING TOGETHER, EVERY AMERICAN FAMILY CAN ACHIEVE EQUITABLE ACCESS TO WATER AND SANITATION IN OUR LIFETIMES, AND THAT BY LEARNING TO BETTER CARE FOR OUR WATER RESOURCES, WE CAN MAKE THEM LAST FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS.
DigDeep leverages their reputation as the first global WASH* organization to return home in order to build a powerful domestic WASH sector that unites communities, policy makers, businesses, academic institutions, funders, and frontline organizations.
*WASH (or WaSH) is an acronym that stands for "water, sanitation and hygiene". Universal, affordable and sustainable access to WASH is a key public health and equity issue and is the focus of UN Sustainable Development Goal 6.
When DigDeep plans a local project, every effort is made to source all the necessary work (ex. well drilling) from within the affected community in support of the local economy. Each project empowers local stakeholders to defend their own rights… as decision-makers, maintenance-trainees, construction specialists or community spokesmen (to name a few roles).
