  • Giving Tuesday

    Live Water Foundation is a 100% volunteer-based organization that relies entirely on charitable contributions. Our goal is to spend as much time as we can focused on the proper development and implementation of our programs, rather than organizing fundraisers. Giving Tuesday’s mission and reach extends to us an opportunity to elevate our story and broaden our donor base, two key contributors to providing the private funding without which our programs could not run. In 2017, 67% of the donations from Giving Tuesday were from first-time donors.[3] We hope to tap into that incredible potential to increase our ability to continue to provide free services to military veterans and underserved youth, as well as funds for our Chesapeake Bay restoration initiatives.
  • Live Water Luau Bar Sponsors

    It’s time to say thank you to our sponsors for this year’s Live Water Luau. Each of our sponsors are businesses and individuals from around the greater Annapolis area are exemplary of community leadership and commitment to service. We are so proud to have them as our sponsors for an event that we hope will encapsulate the collective mindset we are lauding in these folks.

    Today, we are extending our deepest appreciation for these companies that have signed on as sponsors for our first ever Live Water Luau. Their generosity helps to broadcast our Mission to Inspire and Empower the people and organizations we work with by facilitating watersports programs that improve the health, wellness, and environment of our communities.
