Note: The Impact & Results score currently has no effect on the nonprofit's Star Rating.

The Impact & Results score is a measure of how well a nonprofit delivers on its stated mission. To issue a score, Charity Navigator estimates the actual impact the nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determines whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact. Learn more about our Impact & Results methodology here.

Program Activities
Water for Good's local technicians maintained and monitored 1,125 water projects, keeping the clean water flowing from improved sources in rural areas of the Central African Republic, one of poorest countries in the world.
Impact Statement
$1 provides clean water to a person for a year.
Assessment Benchmark
Impact & Results scores of water access programs are based on the cost to provide clean water relative to the market cost that a person incurs to buy water in that country. Programs receive an Impact & Results score of 100 if they provide water for less than 75% of the estimated market costs, and a score of 75 if they do so for less than 125%. If a nonprofit reports impact but doesn't meet the threshold for cost-effectiveness, it earns a score of 50.
Methodology
Using data reported by Water for Good, ImpactMatters analysts calculated impact.
Data Source
Outcome data collected through local staff, who complete electronic reports on-site during service visits, providing photo and G.P.S. verification water project location and functionality. Beneficiary numbers are self-reported by community members and capped at 1,000 people per project.
Method for Attributing Outcomes
Water for Good conservatively estimates that 56 percent of water projects in the Central African Republic would be functional without Water for Good's maintenance program, and 90 percent of projects are functional with the program. Thus, Water for Good attributes 44 percent of people who have access now to the maintenance program.
