WaterHarvest has a great community of supporters – people like you who want to make a difference. There are many ways you can join us and help bring clean water to remote, vulnerable communities.
Swim, sing, bake, run...
Could you fundraise for us? There are many different ways to fundraise. Marathons, half marathons, bake sales, christmas card sales, water walks, swimming the english channel and quizzes are just some of the things supporters have done to raise funds for WaterHarvest. We have lots of ideas – donate your birthday or other special occasion, moveable feasts – just get in touch if you would like more ideas or to join other people who are raising money for WaterHarvest.
We are here to support you
If you would like to fundraise for us, there are lots of ways we can support you. We have lots of ideas and materials and other volunteers who could help you! We will keep you and your supporters in touch on how the funds you have raised have made a difference to the lives of the communities we work in.
Every pound you raise makes a difference
We know how hard people work to fundraise and promise that each pound will be used to maximum effect. No big overheads, no waste and a focus on efficiency. £10 provides clean water for a family for three months.
Join us as a Volunteer
Lend your skills
As a small charity, we rely on volunteers. Currently, we have volunteers for copy writing, digital marketing, finance, hydrogeology, data analytics, social media and many more. Having people who can help on specific areas makes a huge difference to the work we and enables us to do more – and ultimately help more people. If you would like to volunteer, please get in touch.
Build a long term relationship with us
Many of our volunteers have been with us for many years, some as many as twenty years. Volunteering with us builds long term relationships, you see the projects develop over the years and the progress among the communities we work in. Many of our volunteers go out to see the programmes in India themselves.
Integral part of our team
We recognise that volunteers have to fit helping us around other commitments. We ask for either a block of time or a regular few hours each week or month. As a volunteer, you would be an integral part of our team, attend our strategy days and relevant meetings.
A will for water
Where there is water, there is life
A gift in your will is a gift of life for families fighting water poverty in rural India. There are many different types of gifts, including a specific sum, a specific item or a share of your estate. The latter, known as a residual legacy, is the most common as it takes care of family and loved ones first. To leave a gift in a will specific wording must be used and your solicitor will usually lay this out for you.
Leave a legacy of life
We understand that pledging a gift is a big decision and we respect that you will make it in your own time. If you do decide to make a gift, we will look after your gift with the utmost security and sensitivity.
Your gift will transform lives for generations
