Frequently Asked Questions
Interested in learning more about becoming a monthly donor with the Village? Check out our most frequently asked questions regarding membership.
Why is monthly giving better than a one-time donation?
Your monthly donation of $5 or more over the course of one year can provide a lifetime supply of clean water to 4 people. Unlike one-time gifts, recurring monthly donations allow us to have continuous funding for water project implementation and maintenance throughout the year, helping us reach more people with this vital resource annually. And, monthly giving makes it easier for you to budget your giving to maximize your impact.
Is there a minimum amount that I can give?
$5 is the minimum monthly gift, and there is no cap on maximum monthly gift.
Is my donation tax deductible?
Yes! Per your local regulations, your gift is tax deductible. Upon your monthly donation, you will receive a donation receipt for your records.
When will I be billed each month?
You will be billed on the same day that you made your initial pledge unless you select a different day within your donor portal.
Is it possible to edit my current recurring donation?
To edit your payment method, change the date of your monthly donation, or change the amount, visit our donor portal here.
What does my monthly donation go toward?
A recurring monthly donation goes toward bringing a sustainable clean water source to communities across East Africa. The Ripple Effect of clean water can sometimes be forgotten. With clean water, Disease rates will plummet, education will increase, gender equality will improve, agriculture and commerce will flourish, and community development will thrive.
What if I need to cancel my recurring donation?
You can cancel your monthly donation at any time by clicking the link within your donation receipt and following the instructions provided.
