What does the Water Foundation fund?

We are focused on securing safe water for people, restoring and sustaining freshwater ecosystems, and building climate resilience, both urban and rural. To achieve these goals, we support policy development and advocacy, coalition building, collaboration among interest groups, civic engagement, grassroots mobilization, research and analysis, legal strategies, and communications.

While our work is primarily focused in California, we are expanding to other parts of the country, including New Mexico and the Pacific Northwest.

Can I apply for a grant?

Water Foundation grants are awarded to organizations identified and chosen by foundation staff. If you have been invited to submit a proposal, please visit our grants portal. We do not accept unsolicited proposals. If you have additional questions about Water Foundation grantmaking, please email [email protected].
