Children's Safe Drinking Water

Share the power of clean water with children around the world.

More than 1,000 children die every day from diseases caused by drinking unsafe water. P&G, in collaboration with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has developed a low-cost technology to purify even heavily contaminated drinking water so that it meets World Health Organization standards for safe drinking water. Learn more about the Children's Safe Drinking Water Program.

Funding will be provided to qualified charities in order to help provide safe drinking water in the developing world. For only two pennies, a child can have clean drinking water for a day.

About Contributions

The Children’s Safe Drinking Water Fund is a charitable fund managed by Greater Cincinnati Foundation.

All contributions, once accepted by GCF's Governing Board, represent an irrevocable contribution to Greater Cincinnati Foundation and are not refundable. Please note that credit card transactions carry a fee. This fee will be deducted from the gift amount and the net proceeds will be added to the fund. Your tax deduction will still be the gross amount of the gift.
