THIS is How We Multiply Your Impact
Every dollar you give to Water For People multiplies. Our strategic partners such as communities, local governments, and local businesses also invest. In addition, the health and economic benefits of investing in clean water provide a seven-fold return, helping your $50 investment multiply to over $500!
Water For People’s sustainable Everyone Forever model requires co-investment from partners like local governments and businesses. The average amount of co-investment is an additional $0.53 for every dollar we provide.
When communities have clean water and sanitation, people are healthier – reducing medical costs. They also save time otherwise spent walking to fetch water – time now available to spend on economic or educational pursuits. As a result, the return-on-investment for clean water is seven-fold.
Thus, Water For People’s impact calculation is: $1 x 1.535 x 7 = $10.75.
