Why a percentage of sales proceeds
We choose to commit a percentage of our sales proceeds instead of a percentage of our profit so that it is more transparent to the customers. You will know the exact amount donated from your purchase. This means it is regardless of the company's expenses and overheads.
Why we choose charity: water
The 100% Promise
Charity: water promises that 100% of their donations would go directly to the field to fund water projects. They will find another way to cover their operating expenses. And they will even reimburse credit card fees when donations were made online. They depend on private donors, foundations and sponsors to cover everything from staff salaries to basic office systems to office rent and supplies. These donors are some of their most dedicated: their investment fuels charity: water's long-term mission, their ability to scale as an organization and their mission to continue using 100% of public donations for water projects.
