Scott Harrioson Keynote

Scott Harrison is the founder and CEO of charity: water. Through radical transparency and innovative digital practices, charity: water has mobilized 1M+ supporters from 105 countries, raised over $330M, and funded clean water projects in 28 countries for over 8.5M people. Scott was recently named #10 in Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business, and has been profiled in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and by Forbes, Fortune and INC Magazines.

Scott Harrison is the founder and CEO of charity: water, a nonprofit organization on a mission to bring clean and safe drinking water to communities in need. After spending a decade in New York City chasing the fast life as a nightclub promoter, Scott found himself to be spiritually, morally and emotionally bankrupt. He began to rediscover his faith in a different way as an adult and decided to explore a 180-degree turn in his life and spent a year serving others in Africa. Upon learning more about the world’s (then) 1.1 billion people living without access to clean water, Scott returned to NYC determined to help and started charity: water.

In just ten years’ time, charity: water has raised over $210 million to fund more than 20,000 water projects in 24 countries around the world to bring clean and safe drinking water to over 6.3 million people. Scott has received many accolades from the media for his impactful efforts and accomplishments, including Fortune’s 40 under 40 list, Forbes’ Impact 30 list, and a #10 ranking in Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People in Business issue. He’s also been recognized as a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader. In 2018, Scott released Thirst: A Story of Redemption, Compassion, and a Mission to Bring Clean Water to the World, his New York Times best-selling memoir, for which all the net proceeds go to fund charity: water projects around the world.

Reinventing Charity

Charity: water believes in inspiring generosity. They focus on the positive, tell stories about opportunity and always emphasize the hope more than the need. They work with incredible local partners around the globe to implement the water projects they fund, and their Water Programs team spends about 30% of their time in the field managing projects, building relationships with local teams and reporting back results to donors. Every time a project is completed, charity: water proves it using photos and GPS coordinates on Google Maps.

Through the use of innovative technology, charity: water has also developed remote sensors to monitor the functionality of their water projects. With the help of local leaders and trained mechanics, charity: water is not only working to bring clean water to communities in need, but is making sure it keeps flowing at projects around the world for years to come. This is all made possible by a small group of private donors who pay charity: water’s operating costs, allowing 100% of donations made to clean water to fund water projects for people in need.
