You can be part of the solution.
Whether you’re bringing people together to honour a loved one, collecting from your fellow book club members, or taking on a personal challenge — you can be a part of helping Indigenous communities access safe, clean water.
Let’s face it, fundraising can be difficult. From collecting money to finding volunteers, Water First understands what it takes to make a fundraiser successful. That’s why we have created tools and resources to help you on the way.
Many First Nations in Canada have identified the need for more young, qualified, and local personnel to support solving water issues independently and for the long term. As a school, classroom, or group, you can help support our work addressing these challenges.
A safer way to fundraise: support clean water virtually.
