School Co-Funding Campaign

Tap Water Watch’s Co-Fund Platform enables schools to raise funding online to replace old, contaminated drinking fountains with new filtered water bottle filling stations.

By creating a co-fund campaign, schools are able to raise funding online through staff, parents, community members and local businesses alongside our corporate sponsors.

Hydration

Simply put, kids are happier and healthier when they are hydrated. However, 54% of students test below the minimum daily water intake. Studies consistently show that keeping kids hydrated results in better behavior and performance in school.

Lead

Tap Water Watch testing data (>11,000 schools) shows elevated levels of lead in 56% of schools tested.

Germs

Younger students oftentimes put their mouths on drinking fountains, which transfers germs and results in missed days of school.

Missed Class Time

When a student needs to leave the classroom to get a drink from a fountain, he/she can be a disturbance to the class and miss valuable class time.

Easy Refill

Older, traditional fountains do not allow students to easily refill bottles.

Sugary Drinks

Almost two-thirds of children in the US consume at least one sugary drink on any given day – and roughly 30% consume two or more per day resulting in weight gain, type 2 diabetes, cavities and high cholesterol.

Plastic

Approximately 60 million plastic water bottles are used every day in the US, with over 18 billion ending up in a landfill each year. Each bottle can take up to 700 years to decompose.

Save Money

Purchasing bottles of water is expensive for both students and staff.
