Donation within the Water domain

At VP Capital, we believe the gap between supply and demand for fresh water will only grow if we do not find more efficient and economic ways of dealing with it. Which is why we aim to contribute towards a more sustainable and responsible use of water by making direct and indirect investments in this domain. But also by donating funds to worthwhile initiatives that offer solutions to its key challenges.

On the left are the key challenges of the Water domain listed. Possible solutions where our donations can make a difference:

  • Organisations that support dryland communities with expert solutions for improving soil fertility and water retention
  • Organisations that offer assistance in areas affected by water scarcity by helping to set up key infrastructure such as water wells
  • Organisations dedicated to fighting the degradation of our oceans by helping to preserve coral reefs, counter acidity, reduce plastic waste, etc.

Together with the independent professional impact organisation Telos impact, we’ve compiled a shortlist of worthwhile causes that make a tangible contribution to overcoming water-related challenges. The selection is based on extensive due diligence and a thorough analysis of such criteria as impact, management & governance, finance, operations and the organisation’s general action plan. This exercise is performed every year to determine which organisation or organisations make the most significant contribution.

Our donation this year goes to Young Water Solutions, the non-profit organisation dedicated to improving access to fresh water and sanitation. Young Water Solutions was given the highest score in the domain by Telos.
