Trumark Homes Donates $120,000 to charity: water from 2023 Home Sales

San Ramon, Calif. (March 20, 2024) — Trumark Homes today announced a $120,000 gift to global nonprofit, charity: water, an organization dedicated to providing clean and safe water to the millions of people living without it. This year’s contribution is a record-high donation by Trumark Homes, who has supported the non-profit since 2012, providing a cumulative amount of $575,000 with more than 16,000 people served by the water projects funded and built throughout Africa.  

The latest gift will fund the rehabilitation of 11 water wells in the southeastern African country of Mozambique, providing access to clean and safe drinking water to an estimated 3,575 people. The company’s announcement coincides with World Water Day, the global campaign aiming to unite countries worldwide around protecting and conserving the world’s most precious resource. 

“We are honored to support charity: water and help provide clean and safe drinking water to communities in Africa,” said Michael Maples, Principal and Co-Founder of Trumark Companies. “During a life-changing trip to Africa years ago, Gregg and I saw the need firsthand and we remain committed to being a part of the immediate positive impact access to clean and safe drinking water has on the communities served by charity: water.” 

Trumark Homes has committed that for every 50 homes sold they will work with charity: water to provide and serve approximately 200 people with fresh, clean water. In 2023, Trumark sold 766 homes across Northern, Central and Southern California, and Colorado, translating to 3,064 people served – the highest annual number to-date. 

charity: water is a U.S. based non-profit organization committed to ending the global water crisis by bringing clean and safe drinking water to people around the world. With 58% of the population lacking access to water, charity: water’s sustainable solutions bring clean, safe water where it’s needed most, bringing health and education, empowering women, and helping to grow economies.

It is estimated by UNICEF that 1.8 billion people globally live in households without water supplies on the premises, and women and girls aged 15 and older are primarily responsible for water collection in 7 out of 10 such households. With access to clean water across charity: water projects, the average household saves 70 minutes a day. The organization advocates for giving this irreplaceable time back to women and girls and ending the “walk for water.”

In the 12 years that Trumark Homes has supported charity: water, its contributions have funded 58 water projects Africa from Ethiopia and Uganda to Malawi and Mozambique. 

“Our employees find passion and purpose in translating the work we do in California and Colorado to the communities and individuals that we continue to impact through our work with charity: water,” added Maples. “We look forward to supporting additional sustainable, community-owned water projects this year and beyond, to alleviate the daily struggles people can face in simply accessing fresh, clean water.”
