Someone -- often a child -- is dying every 20 seconds from diarrheal diseases caused by dirty water and inadequate sanitation and hygiene. YOU can save lives. Please donate TODAY.

Because our overhead is consistently less than 10%, every $1 you invest provides a child or adult with safe water for a year!

Donate Securities

Donate Securities

Donate stocks or mutual funds. These donations are managed by our partner, Link Charity. To donate, please download and fill out the forms.

There are no capital gains taxes on securities donated directly to charities. Donating securities maximizes your gift to Lifewater and gives you a bigger tax receipt! 

For example, if the stock you bought for $1,000 is now worth $5,000, you have a capital gain of $4,000 of which $2,000 is taxable income. If you donate the stock, you are exempt from this taxable gain. Depending on your tax bracket, donating stock instead of net proceeds can save you anywhere from $200 to $1,060 in income tax giving you bigger tax receipt. And the charity receives more cash.

Payroll Deduction

Payroll Deduction

Some companies have donation matching programs which can multiply the impact of your gift to Lifewater.

You can also direct part or all of your United Way payroll deductions to Lifewater Canada. 

Because we work overseas, we are not a designated United Way Charity. However, you can donate to Lifewater while actively supporting your workplace drive. On your United Way Pledge Form under the heading "Additional Giving Options," you can designate your donation to Lifewater using this information:
Charity: Lifewater Canada
City: Thunder Bay, ON, P7E 5L1

Please note that some United Way offices charge a $16 fee for providing this service and the designated donation must be at least $25.

You can also organize your own Lifewater Canada fundraising event. Our "Get Involved" page offers lots of event suggestions, and detailed instructions for raising funds online or at your event.
