The crypto community has the power to be a game changer in the battle for clean water. When you donate crypto, we immediately convert your coins into USD and put it to work. Every $100 gives 100 people clean water for 25 years using the solar water Box. Every $5,000 funds one complete clean water project. 1 BTC can fund 10 complete projects.
Our funding goal is to raise $1 Million USD in crypto donations in 2022 to provide safe and clean drinking water to 1 million people for 25 years. Eventually, we will work together to reach every single one of the 1.2 billion people living in water poverty.
Bondh E Shams is big on transparency of impact. Upon donation, you will be provided a unique login pin that you can use to enter a donors-only portal that shows the GPS, pictures and daily water provided by your donation.
In addition to your donation, we also invite you to apply for the Water Maker’s Initiative to join our exclusive community of change makers.
Yes (in the US, per IRS guidelines). We only accept crypto donations for our US 501(c)(3) charity.

When donating crypto directly, you receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the crypto, and you are relieved of the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation.
If you provide an email at the time of donation, you will automatically receive a tax receipt via our processing partner, The Giving Block.Nothing in this communication is intended to constitute legal or tax advice. Please consult your tax advisor.
