Clean water charity wins major prize for transparency

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — Lifewater International, a Christian clean water charity, today announces an unprecedented double award for transparency and effective communication.

The awards, distributed by Colorado-based foundation Counsel & Capital, recognize Lifewater’s dedication to providing timely, accessible information about their global programs.

Award winnings totaling $62,500 for Best Annual Report and Best CEO Letter were awarded to Lifewater in early December.

“We’re deeply humbled to be chosen by Counsel & Capital and blessed to partner with them as we work to bring safe water and improved health to remote communities,” Lifewater President/CEO Justin Narducci said. “Providing stakeholders with a truthful account of our work will always be priority at Lifewater.”

Founded in 1998, Counsel & Capital believes that with biblical principles, powerful communication, and the highest standard of transparency, charities can more effectively connect with donors.

In 2018, the foundation awarded a total of $75,000 for “Best Annual Report,” “Best CEO Letter,” and “Most Effective Focus” to nonprofits whose Annual Report met or exceeded their expectations.

This year, Lifewater became the first organization to receive both “Best Annual Report” and “Best CEO Letter” in one year.

“Our Annual Report awards highlight ministries that create trust and transparency for their donors,” Counsel & Capital President Randon Samelson said. “Lifewater’s 2018 report is both crystal clear and inspirational; it provides a deeper connection between donors and the impact of their giving.”
