Other ways to give

Monthly giving

(most popular!)

Your monthly gift will help sustain our work around the globe. Recurring gifts are simple and easy to set up. You provide us with the income we can count on to fund our projects – tangible results you can see for yourself. Starting from $ 10 a month.

Employer matching gifts

Make your boss work for you (in this one instance)

Many companies offer to match their staff's donations on a one-to-one or two-to-one basis. In fact, approximately 65% of the Fortune 500 companies have matching gift programs. Find out if your employer offers matched giving by searching our database.

Planned gifts

For the strategic planners out there

Consider a bequest through your will or living trust, or leave a legacy with a gift of life insurance or qualified retirement plan assets. To plan your giving or to inform us of your intent please call us at (212) 683-0430 or email us.

Donate stock or securities

Donating appreciated securities, such as stock or mutual funds, to WaterAid is a tax-wise approach for helping provide clean water and sanitation to those in need. To initiate a gift of stock or securities, please call us at (212) 683-0430 or email us.

Donor-advised funds

A donor-­advised fund (DAF) allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support WaterAid America. DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to WaterAid America, directly from your DAF.

Tributes and memorial donations

Honor a special person or remember a loved one with a gift of clean water to those that need it most. Your gift will help transform the lives of children and families around the world. This simple step will mean so much.
