Mike Mason, CEO and president of Weathermatic, Garland, Texas, has announced the formation of the Weathermatic Foundation. This is a charitable fund whose mission is to enable more individuals, communities and corporations to participate with Weathermatic in the goal of providing clean drinking water to 100,000 people.
“The Weathermatic vision is Water with Purpose. This is a company-wide focus and commitment to conserve water, to advance irrigation technology and to support missions that bring clean water to those in need,” says Mason. “Since we began this work, Weathermatic has developed 64 clean water wells around the world and impacted the lives of 20,000 people. Many of our most valued customers and partners have long wanted to help do more to reach our goal of saving over 100,000 lives. We are launching this foundation to make that wish a reality.”
The Weathermatic Foundation is directed toward the goal of solving the global water crisis. Millions of people lack access to clean drinking water around the world. Clean water is the foundation for human health and growth. Access to clean water leads to better hygiene practices, stronger health care, better education systems, and more community and economic growth.
In addition to the impact on those in need, the volunteers who participate with Weathermatic on water well trips are also deeply affected by the experience. “Our water well trips usually change the volunteers as much as the recipients,” says Brodie Bruner, executive vice president of Weathermatic. “Every volunteer who goes comes back with a deeper desire to live with purpose, to work with purpose and to water with purpose.”
Weathermatic has partnered with the Communities Foundation of Texas to create the formal structure and framework for charitable, tax-deductible contributions. A secure donation portal has been set up for online gifts here.
Donations to the Weathermatic Foundation will fund water well projects around the world with the purpose to deliver clean water directly to those who need it the most. Weathermatic invites everyone to join in and participate and to Water with Purpose.
