Families and communities around the world - currently over 2.2 billion people - are without access to clean water. This work feeds our hearts and souls. 

Since its creation in 2023, The Sawyer Foundation has provided over $1,000,000 in funds to support clean water projects across the globe, and this Giving Tuesday Sawyer will be matching all donations made to help fund this life-saving work. 


Here’s what your donation helps make possible - 

  • Thorough and sustainable training and maintenance programs that allow our water filters to last over a decade of daily use. 
  • Essential logistics for charity partners including freight and transportation between projects. 
  • Research and data-collection of health outcomes, socio-economic benefits to communities, and long-term use to ensure the solution we’re providing for communities is impactful and sustainable.
  • Support for rapid response to disasters that impact access to clean water across the globe. 


Have you been moved by the incredible storytelling of our Sawyer Squad as they traveled across the globe this year to witness clean water work in action? Leave a note in the comments field to let us know what stories touched your heart and inspired your donation.
