Donor Advised Funds (DAFs)
Food & Water Watch greatly appreciates gifts made through donor advised funds. You may direct gifts using our Federal ID (EIN): 32-0160439
Many companies have employee matching gifts programs to further the impact of their employees’ giving. Check with your human resources department about whether your contribution to Food & Water Watch can be matched by your employer. Your human resources department will also provide you on instructions on how to qualify your gift to be matched.
There are a number of ways your employer may process their gift so it’s best to check with your human resources department for their protocol. When you send us your donation, simply include your company’s matching gift form and we’ll then confirm the gift with your workplace. If you’ve already made a donation and learned that your company does offer to match, you can send us the form and we’ll verify with your employer.

While we accept no money from corporations, there are ways you can support our campaigns via your own employer’s giving programs. Workplace giving is a convenient way to help Food & Water Watch champion safe food and clean water for all. Some companies will match your donations to Food & Water Watch (see also Matching Gifts), while others will allow you to make a simple payroll deduction through different workplace giving campaigns (such as the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) for federal workers).
Ask your employer if these programs are available to you.
Combined Federal Campaign/United Way
The Combined Federal Campaign is the largest workplace giving campaign in the world. The CFC is a great opportunity for federal employees to make a difference. Simply designate Food & Water Watch for your Combined Federal Campaign contribution. Look for CFC number: 17460.
Many workplaces beyond the federal government have workplace giving campaigns through the United Way. Look for Food & Water Watch or EarthShare (see below) to designate annual support through these campaigns at your workplace.
Food & Water Watch is a member of EarthShare, a nationwide network of America's leading non-profit environmental and conservation organizations that works to promote environmental education and charitable contributions through workplace giving campaigns. EarthShare provides environmentally conscious employees and workplaces with the opportunity to support hundreds of environmental groups through a charitable giving drive. Employees who contribute to EarthShare can specify that their entire contribution benefit Food & Water Watch. Alternatively, you can give a general contribution to EarthShare and your donation will be divided among the environmental groups EarthShare benefits.
We are proud of the progress we are making and the many victories for healthy food and clean drinking water made possible by our members and supporters. We know, though, that the threats to our most essential resources are only growing, and that we must stay ever vigilant to ensure that our democracy works for people, not just big corporations and powerful special interests. A gift to the Food & Water Watch Future Fund through your will or trust ensures that your values of caring for others and your legacy of advocacy for democracy that works for us all, will continue on now and for generations to come. Learn more about planned giving.
While it takes donations of money to fund our campaigns, we know that many people want to do even more by also donating their time. It takes a movement to stand up to big corporations and make government work for people, so we always need the help of committed volunteers! Sign up and let us know your interests, and we’ll be in touch with more ways to get involved.
Create a personal fundraising page to share your story and inspire your friends and family to donate to Food & Water Watch, where they can provide direct funding for important campaigns like banning fracking and protecting our food and water. If interested, please contact our Development Coordinator, Aliya Mejias, at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be in touch to set up a donation page specifically for you, which you can share with your friends, family and community members.
Birthdays and Special Occasions
Dedicating your life event to Food & Water Watch is a great alternative to traditional gifts, and a great way to stop fracking and protect our food and water! We can set up a fundraising page for your birthday, anniversary, graduation, or any day special to you or your community. Sharing your personal story is a great way to inspire others to follow your lead and support healthy food and clean water for all. If interested, please contact our Development Coordinator, Aliya Mejias, at email@example.com, and we’ll be in touch to set up a donation page specifically for you, which you can share with your friends, family and community members.
Once we receive all your information, we will set up a donation page specifically for you that you can share with your friends, family and community members.
Climate Ride and Endurance Events
If you like to bike or hike, you can raise money to help Food & Water Watch’s campaigns by participating in a Climate Ride or Climate Hike event in beautiful locations across the country.
