Donate to The Well Foundation
100% of the money you donate to The Well Foundation is spent on our projects.
If you're kind enough to allow us to claim the gift aid on your donation, then, we use a small portion of those funds to pay for our fund raising activities.
If you donate £1, 100% of that £1 pound will be sent to our implementing partner (Implementing Partner is another charity who will build our wells, grow our trees etc. We can not afford buy large Well digging machines, so we use other charities that do.) The implementing partner usually take % which can vary from 0% to 12.5%, this cost is already included in the project, this usually pays for their workers on the ground who carry out the work.
We use Just Giving as it keeps track of money and it is easy to claim gift aid back. If you donate £1 to any project, Just Giving take 5% but if you click the gift aid box they give us 25% back so for that £1 we get £1.20, there is also a £17 monthly charge. The £1 you donate goes to that project and the 20p goes to admin costs, Why don’t we donate that 20p also you might ask? If you donate £1 and don’t click the gift aid box then its only 95p so if someone donates £500 without clicking box its £475 we have to compensate for those costs also.
Oceanic take an Admin Fee for us to be Charity Partner, each event varies.

Some words from our donors
All donations received with thanks!
We can't do what we do without your help.
I heard about The Well Foundation and the charitable work they carry out around the world about 5 years ago. I was Particularly interested in their clean water projects and decided to contribute to one of them. I was given an accurate account of the works and provided photographs on completion. Me and my family were very impressed with the high standard of work and were kept informed of progress throughout. It is amazing that this charity and its team work thanklessly and selflessly all year around. I will always support them, their work makes a great impact and every penny goes towards the cause. A supporter for life!
Project: Well in the name of loved one
The Well Foundation made the whole process so easy and I was so impressed at how quickly all the donations actually materialised. Within a few weeks of setting up the page I could see exactly where the donations had gone.
The Well Foundation has achieved so much in such little time. My son has really benefited from their activities.
Having been connected to the charity for many years I have experienced the joy of the recipients of a water well flowing back to the donors and I have loved being part of that bridge. It is like experiencing a miracle. In these precious moments there is a powerful realisation that we are all human and we are all connected in our depths. Water transcends all barriers: from the depths of a well to the provision of life. The gift of water you give to others is the gift you give to yourself. Simply going a day without water quickly makes you appreciate that having clean water is a true blessing. The Well Foundation is a cause that is very close to my heart. It connects me to a purpose that is far greater and more eternal than myself and I have been able to share this gift with my family. A continuous charity where the benefit of your contribution will continue to flow. Faiza and Fahim and The Well Foundation have given me more than I could have ever imagined on this journey and they will always have my continued support. Thank you.
