Over $1,000,000 raised for grassroots environmental movements


We are a small not-for-profit, but we believe in leveraging our funds into even bigger impact.

We work to match every dollar donated to Water Watchers with fundraising for other grassroots movements. Since 2017, we've helped raise $1,036,100 for other grassroots groups to fuel their movements.



Water Watchers is generously supported by donors, grants, and foundations. We also provide services to grassroots groups to help them win big for the environment. 



Thank you to all our supporters and funders for helping us empower people & communities to work in solidarity towards social justice through the unifying lens of water.
