How is my donation used?

Your generous gift makes our programming possible. Through AquaHacking and AquaEntrepreneur, you support young innovators as they develop their ideas to solve water challenges. While it costs nothing to sign up for the AquaHacking Challenge, sometimes teams need funds to support the development of their solutions. Costs may include equipment, materials, and travel. Funds also support top-notch mentorship for our teams, as well as the development of skills-building tools, workshops, and immersive experiences. Finally, your donation contributes to cash prizes for each of our finalist teams, so that they can continue to develop their solutions beyond the AquaHacking Challenge.


Thank you for your support and generosity.
