"WATER IS THE DRIVING FORCE OF ALL NATURE"- LEONARDO DA VINCI

844 million people — about 1 in 9 — lack access to safe water; 2.3 billion — about 1 in 3 — lack access to a toilet. Water.org is dedicated to changing this, empowering families through access to affordable financing and expert resources to make household water and toilet solutions a reality. Water.org is an international nonprofit organization that has positively transformed millions of lives around the world through access to safe water and sanitation. Founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, Water.org pioneers innovative, market-driven solutions to the global water crisis — breaking down barriers to give families hope, health and the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty.

The Steinbock family closed on the purchase of their new home in Lakewood Ranch and chose Water.org as their recipient for their Catalist Commission Donation. This organization holds a special place in their heart as they have traveled personally to Africa for mission work and have seen the impact that having and not having safe water has on the local communities. 

Water.org provides water for all purposes. People need and use water for drinking, bathing, cooking, cleaning, growing crops, nourishing animals, and much more. Based on their most recent calculations, this donation will provide access to safe water for a year for approximately 139 people. 

The most important thing is that this money is donated as “Unrestricted Funds” allowing them to spend it in the most critical area of need at the time. Unrestricted donations are the largest need for non-profits, and typically the hardest donations to find. Catalist Realty is proud to be a partner and supporter of unrestricted donations for any and all non-profits. Special thank you to McCullough Legal Services for handling the closing of this transaction and contributing a portion of the closing fee to the cause as well!
