Water is the most critical resource on the planet; vital to sustaining life for millions of diverse plant and animal species, supporting the livelihoods of billions of coastal and rural communities, and buoying our global economy.

The Approach

The Drop by Drop Project is a collaborative initiative that sets out to reinvest capital from water stewardship efforts into innovative projects. Water savings from our corporate partner conservation programs are converted into Drop by Drop funding that is then awarded to local water champions to increase local water resiliency, reinvigorate ecosystems, incubate new water solutions, and engage the community.
