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, whether you choose to fundraise online or locally.
Many Indigenous communities 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, group, or individual, you can help support our work addressing these challenges.
Fundraise online and support clean water virtually.
Raising money online is easy with a CanadaHelps fundraising page.
This past year has brought many challenges, especially for our Indigenous partners. Fundraising online can help engage supporters in your community from a safe distance.
Step 1: Create a free CanadaHelps account.
Step 2: Search and add Water First as your charity to fundraise for.
Step 3: Add details about your fundraising goals.
Step 4: Share your personal fundraising page with family and friends!
Concern for water challenges in Indigenous communities runs deep at Rotary Club of Guelph.
