WaterEquity is an innovation of water.org

WaterEquity builds on the decades of experience and success of Water.org – helping millions by breaking down the barriers to safe water and sanitation.


Our Goal

Our goal is to attract and deploy social investment capital to high-growth, purpose-driven enterprises that have the potential to serve hundreds of millions of people who lack access to safe water and sanitation.

Our Approach

Our approach is unlike any other in the sector. By tapping into global capital markets, we can unlock the ability to scale and accelerate solutions that have the potential to end the global water crisis in our lifetime.
