Get SOURCE to Democratize Water

Around the world SOURCE is improving lives through water ownership. But, to achieve our mission of democratizing water- we need your help. With your purchase, you and another family own your great-tasting water.

  • You buy SOURCE for
    your family. With your
    purchase you give (in 10%
    increments) a portion of the
    cost of another panel. Our
    Certified Installers
    install SOURCE, giving
    you water ownership.

  • You pick where in
    the world your addition
    is directed. Funded panels
    are delivered to a family
    selected by one of our
    in-region partners,
    giving them water

  • The receiving family
    does not get SOURCE
    for free - they buy
    it for the cost of getting
    it to their home &
    installation, money stays

How Your Purchase Democratizes Water

Our partners identify families in their communities that don’t have clean drinking water. Because we value support, not handouts, these families don’t receive their panels for free - they buy SOURCE for the cost of getting it to their home and installation. This allows us to reach more people while building an ecosystem of partners, installers, and service providers in every SOURCE community. And the money they spend to have SOURCE stays in their community. Together, we are using our connected resources to enable water ownership worldwide and finally have water, democratized.

Why Not Give SOURCE for Free?

We thought about it. We researched social enterprises, analyzed studies and articles from experts, and even published a call for feedback on our model. We learned that while it feels & seems like a good idea to give technology solutions to people who need them, we’re not solving the root of the problem. When you give something away, you damage the market, remove incentives that support ecosystems around the technology, and fail to recognize recipients’ purchasing power and desire to contribute.
