Water Engineers for the Americas began as a modest idea, sponsored by a handful of friends, and has since grown into a non-profit organization that has attracted the support of hundreds of people, foundations, NGOs and companies.
What unites them all is a common calling to do something about the lack of access to basic necessities like safe drinking water and proper sanitation. Through the generous funding and support of these donors, WEFTA has been able to grow and assist thousands of families in Latin America and Africa.
WEFTA ensures that 100% of donations go directly to the work on our water and sanitation programs. Our administrative team uses a contract accountant and financial software program to keep close control of WEFTA’s finances and to keep the board members and donors apprised of completed, ongoing, and proposed projects. Also, our financial records are audited annually by an independent CPA group who helps us ensure financial accountability and bookkeeping efficiency.
We are committed to financial transparency and like to show our donors how their money is being used by providing our financial information and year-end reports. We invite everyone to read our year-end reports and reference our annual 990 tax forms. Detailed Trip Reports for site visits made by our volunteer engineers are also available to read. The reports provide summaries of what our volunteers observed and accomplished in-country and how donations were spent.
