In America today, 2.2 million people still do not have hot and cold running water, a bathtub or shower, or a working flush toilet. At least 44 million more do not have clean water that is safe to drink. DigDeep is the only WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) organization serving U.S. communities with the goal of closing the Water Gap once and for all. Founded in Los Angeles in 2012, DigDeep believes access to clean water is a human right. Today, DigDeep runs several nationally recognized programs that empower communities to build their own water and sanitation systems while investing in research, storytelling, and sector-building work.
Headquartered in Los Angeles with projects throughout the Southwest and beyond, DigDeep has a staff of 22 employees plus contractors. Its operating budget has nearly doubled over the past year to $4.2 million. Fundraising revenue is a fairly even split of individual and institutional support, including major gifts, grassroots/online giving, corporate sponsorship, foundation giving, and some public contracts. DigDeep has a grassroots donor base of more than 38,000 Americans behind them. They have also begun expanding their work to new areas of the country, leveraging and building relationships with major foundations, trade groups, companies, and benefactors like Jack Dorsey and Lana Del Rey who are passionate about the work.
The Director of Development is the senior staff member in charge or strategizing, coordinating, and implementing all aspects of DigDeep’s partnership and fundraising efforts.
