The Water Education Foundation is the only impartial organization educating people about water issues in California and the Southwest.
We want to be your resource for in-depth, impartial information on drought, water rights, environmental restoration and water quality. Your annual contribution helps us to publish Western Water news, which examines pressing issues in California and along the Colorado River; continue adding terms to Aquapedia, our online water encyclopedia; maintain our daily news update on Aquafornia; publish new titles in our Layperson’s Guide series and update them; develop public television documentaries and educational videos; conduct tours of key water sites in California and the Southwest, and organize special events. Funds from our contributors also support our K-12 school programs, which annually reach more than 200,000 students.
We are grateful for donations of any size. They are all tax-deductible.
Our Giving Back Contribution Plan with multiple levels of support kicks in with a $100 donation. You can see the benefits of donation levels as you scroll down this page.
Your support allows us to conduct tours of key water regions, workshops on critical topics and maintain our website as a resource for information with Aquafornia, Aquapedia and our Water Academy section.
You can make a tax-deductible donation in honor or memory of someone while supporting water education in California and the Southwest.
Your donation will help us carry out our mission to create a better understanding of water resources and foster public understanding and resolution of water resource issues through facilitation, education and outreach.
Aquapedia and Aquafornia are your go-to resources for water information. Help keep these vital water resources sites going by donating now.
Aquapedia is our online water encyclopedia and Aquafornia is our daily roundup of the most pressing news coverage on water in California.
The Water Education Foundation’s goal is to make these educational sites available to the public and free from advertising. We believe in education and delivering the latest and greatest in water, but we need your help.
Planned Giving refers to the process of making a charitable gift of estate assets to a nonprofit organization of your choice. Through this process, you can help to ensure that water education continues in your name. For more information on leaving a legacy to the Foundation, contact Beth Stern or download the PDF below.
