water funder daf program

Contribute to the WaterFunder DAF Program

The WaterFunder DAF Program is designed to bridge the funding and financing gap for disadvantaged communities in the US and its territories. Gifts to the evergreen revolving debt donor advised fund will put DAF assets to work to build resilient water infrastructure. As a virtual foundation, the WaterFunder DAF Program will identify, diligence, structure, and recommend funding and/or financing packages for eligible projects according to how they meet the 9 targeted UN Sustainability Goals and 3 Water Equity Pillars. The DAF Program will  advise the Donor Sponsor to issue a grant or below market rate loan in the form of Mission Related Investment. The principal and surplus from the loan will replenish the revolver for additional grants and loans for future projects. The Donors can customize the WaterFunder DAF Program to meet their organization’s mission.
