Clean Water Fund is on that list.

At a time when our water faces unprecedented threats – extreme cuts, rollbacks and blatant giveaways to big polluters – we hear from many Clean Water Action members who want to be able to do more.
Top Ten Reasons Clean Water Fund should be on YOUR list
#10 Future Generations – Decisions and actions taken in the next 6-10 months could determine our Clean Water Future for decades to come. Now is the time to get involved by making your tax-deductible gift to Clean Water Fund today.
You’ve heard a lot about Plastic Free July from us, and plastic pollution has also been in the news. Here’s my question – are you ready to make the move and switch away from all those wasteful single-use disposable products?
Good! Now let’s do it.
How did you feel when you heard the recent news about EPA caving to big polluters and scrapping the Clean Power Plan pollution rules launched during the Obama Administration? Most of the reporting focused on the horrible climate and air pollution impacts, but the harmful water impacts will be equally severe.
When the summer weather’s nice, and even when it’s not, clean water means fun for everyone.
Let’s keep it that way.
Donate now to join Clean Water Action and fight the rising tide of single-use disposable plastic trash that threatens our water and our health.
Most Clean Water Action members we know – people like you who care about our water and want to see it protected – hold a wide range of opinions. Those opinions sometimes count for more than you might think – a lot more!
How Much is YOUR Opinion Worth?
Start by Taking Charge of Your Change – a new way you can support the fight to Protect Clean Water.
We’ve all had this experience.
You make it to the end of the check-out line. Then, in front of everybody, the cashier looks you in the eye and says “Will you be adding a donation today for [name that worthy cause]?’
If you feel like you’re getting body-slammed by all the requests coming in through your phone or computer, you’re not alone. Here’s why: almost one-third of total giving happens in the month of December. The causes you care about most, and many others, don’t want to be left out.
Has this ever happened to you?
You’re finished shopping. You’re ready to head home with your groceries, or that special gift you just bought, or that last item you needed to finish the project you’ve been working on.
Then comes The Ask: “Would you like to donate your change to [name that worthy cause]?”
