Welcome to Water Well Wish, where we believe that clean water is a fundamental right. Join our mission to provide life’s most basic need – clean, safe drinking water – to families and communities in need. Lack of access to healthy drinking water can reduce life expectancy by up to 20 years. Together, we can make a significant impact and bring hope and health to those without access to this essential resource.

Your donations will directly fund the construction of water wells in underserved areas within the United States. You’ll receive regular updates on the wells you helped build and the lives you’ve transformed.

Our mission will not end until every American has access to clean, safe water. Each water well represents a life-changing gift for the people and families it serves. With your support, starting with the 15 families on our waiting list, we can achieve this ambitious goal. We have processed 9 families for a water well and 5 will be getting one in the upcoming months.
