How to Join #GivingTuesdayNow to Support Clean Water

May 5, 2020

Clean Water Action and Clean Water Fund are joining with other nonprofits to mobilize a national day of giving. Ordinarily, this event happens in late November or early December but the need for action is too urgent to wait.

#GivingTuesdayNow May 5, 2020, spotlights the work of great 501-c-3 nonprofits like Clean Water Fund.

Watering a plant

Why do you keep asking me for money?

April 2, 2020

We get asked this question a lot – even more frequently of late. You deserve some answers.

In ordinary times, Clean Water Action sends out 2 or 3 fundraising (or fundraising-related) appeals each month. Most frequently, this is done by email. We may also call you on the phone, send you a letter in the mail, or (pre-COVID-19) visit you at home when one of our teams is out knocking on doors in your neighborhood.

OK! A few minutes outside was nice. Good call, Woodie!

This means, chances are, you have received one or more communications that were written “before.” Here’s what we would like you to know, now:

All of us here at Clean Water Action sincerely hope you and your family are healthy and remain so.
