Today On Giving Tuesday, Support Water Education in California and the West
Our programs help train the next generation of water leaders and consumers
Today on Giving Tuesday, a global day of generosity, consider supporting the Water Education Foundation by making a donation.
The Foundation, an impartial nonprofit that has garnered the highest level of recognition (platinum rating) by GuideStar, has been educating people about water issues in California and the West since 1977.
Teaching the Next Generation:
- Project WET (Water Education Today) – This year nearly 600 educators across California were taught how to bring lessons on water, climate change and drought into the classroom through our hosted workshops. We are the only sanctioned nonprofit to deliver Project WET in California and we’ve been doing it for more than 27 years.
- Water Leaders Class – This one-year program boasts nearly 450 graduates since its inception in 1997, training the next generation of water leaders who have the ability to resolve water challenges to benefit all.
Keeping the Public Up to Date on the Issues:
- Western Water is the premier publication for in-depth news and other articles on water issues in California and the West.
- Water Tours – For decades, the Foundation’s tours have provided boots-on-the-ground education to those interested in and involved with California water issues, policy and infrastructure.
