Partners

Real life superheroes…without the spandex and capes.

Activating an army of young people to end the global water crisis simply does not happen without a lot of money. Our corporate sponsors aren’t just ATM’s. They give generously of their people, their skills, their experience, their products, and yes…their money…to make our education programs, our campaigns, and our events happen.

Sponsors

We have the biggest crush on our friends at Follett! They power our flagship program: our annual School Tour. They also partner with us to create our “Dirty Little Secret” campaign, and sponsor the Thirst Gala in Hollywood, all to make sure students everywhere have access to clean water and education. They’re KIND OF a big deal!

Our friends at Contiki create fun, life-changing experiences for young travelers. We live for moments & love travel, just like them! They partnered with us to sponsor our campaigns and give away free trips to our best student fundraisers to open their eyes to the crises occurring in this world we share. (Can you say VACAY?!?)

We’ve teamed up with the epic world-changers at Kiwanis International, Circle K, and especially their Key Club to create amazing campaign content that raises awareness of the global water crisis and raises funds to get clean water to those who need it most. We’re honored to partner with an incredible 100 year-old organization to take our “Thirsty 30” campaign to hundreds of thousands of students. (Congrats, guys! You don’t look a day over 99!)

Wyck & Mary Godfrey give incredibly generously to fund our annual operations budget, and the Team at Temple Hill creates introductions to celebrity & influencer friends who share the message of the water crisis with their audience, and work with us to bring you even more awesome, exclusive movie content that you can activate around to end the water crisis. (Yes, they are rad. Yes, we have the coolest job ever!)

Nobody knows students and causes like our pals at DoSomething.org. Besides honoring us at their annual Do Something Awards and awarding us grants over the past few years to fund our school programs as well as freshwater projects, together, we’ve architected Water Walk campaigns to activate their students and ours around the water crisis cause!

Thanks to the incredible generosity of the people at the MacKnight Food Group, we are able to fund some of our biggest freshwater systems each year. These aren’t just single-point wells like most of our solutions; these are large-scale systems with multiple access points serving thousands of people each. They aren’t a typical corporate sponsor who funds our operations, but these systems are so huge, we couldn’t not give them love! The MacKnight Food Group is hungry…for change…and their food is amazing, too! (We know…that was cheesy…but we love cheese.)

Beauty gives back in a big way, and it’s all because of Eden. Eden isn’t just the stunning daughter of the legendary Vidal Sassoon. She and her company make sure we are able to scale up by carrying on her father’s legacy and engaging the beauty industry to end the water crisis, starting with our incredible friends at the Paul Mitchell Schools.

Black is the new blue because Paul Mitchell Schools are changing the world! These young beauty professionals have gone above and beyond to see the end of the global water crisis–from crazy haircuts, to hosting our Road Warriors. Annually, Paul Mitchell Schools raise millions of dollars and have continually elevated the name of Thirst Project in the beauty industry!

Big thanks to the Andrew Gomez Dream Foundation, supported largely by donations from the Paul Mitchell Schools' FUNraising efforts. Year after year, we are so grateful for these beauty professionals that are helping put an end to the global water crisis.

Nobody rallies their fans or supports Thirst Project quite like VIZIO. We’ve loved partnering with VIZIO at VidCon (you can never go wrong with TVs and dunk tanks) and celebrating them at our Annual Thirst Gala. In 2016, VIZIO was awarded the Thirst Project Vision Award for their generous support and industry influence.

Inspire individuality. Give generously. Help hydrate humanity. This is what Not Vodka water stands for, and are all principles that we can stand behind. Every Thirst Project Not Vodka water bottle sold gives $1 to clean water projects. This is not your average water bottle company.

APEX Fun Run is thirsty to make fundraising easier. APEX works alongside elementary school campuses to raise funds for the local communities they're in by hosting 'Fun Run' fundraisers across the nation. In addition to supporting local communities, a portion of the funds raised by each APEX Fun Run will go towards helping Thirst Project crush the water crisis.

Morton Salt is our favorite Salt Bae. From making mind-bending music videos with OK GO to bringing the water crisis to life with their Every Drop Journey, our friends at Morton Salt have made a pretty big dent in the water crisis already. Watch out for what we do together next though because things are starting to get pretty serious.

Foundations

We’re so honored to be members of the Clinton Global Initiative AND CGI University (CGI U). CGI convenes global leaders to create and implement innovative solutions to the world's most pressing challenges. (We totally feel like Freshmen in the lunch room!) Together, we make commitments and partner with other members to end the water crisis, and at CGI U, we mentor some of the most epic college world-changers.

In Kind Donors

It takes a lot to produce an awards show fundraiser (on the same stage as the Golden Globes) that looks like a million bucks on a shoestring budget, but we do it every year! We could NOT do what we do at the annual Thirst Gala without the amazing AV wizardry and donations of our friends at Encore Event Technologies. (As if donating tens of thousands of dollars of product each year weren’t enough, they also fund their own freshwater wells with us. Amazing, right?)

We do a LOT of traveling, and our friends at First in Service get us where we need to go, every time! We could NOT execute our Gala and other events and programs without their support!
