Save the Water(tm) (STW(tm)) is a U.S.-based nonprofit organization dedicated to solving the world water crisis through excellence in water science research and by forming alliances with organizations, scientists, universities, media, businesses, and governments around the world to promote awareness of water contamination issues.

A passion for water. STW(tm) associates must have an understanding of the value and role that water plays in the quality of life of all living things on the planet.

Volunteering with STW(tm) is different from other volunteer experiences as we work in an almost 100% online environment.

Volunteers are held to high standards and deliverable due dates.

We aim to build bridges with local businesses, communities, governments, and schools and have become part of an ever-growing solution in bringing clean water to everybody regardless of their socio-economic backgrounds.

Our educational objectives are to provide students, educators, and communities access to free and extensive resources including water facts, infographics, media, lesson plans, student activities and games, water experiments, curriculum materials for educators and much more! If you have an idea that can contribute to our worthy cause, we would love to hear from you!
