In 2008, Generosity Water, Inc. (now called was founded by father-son team Philip and Jordan Wagner as a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to ending the clean water crisis in developing countries.
Since the inception of, they have raised over $5 million, funding over 752 water projects, giving clean water to over 400,000 people around the world.

Candy Wang started drilling clean water wells in countries around the world to people that had no access to clean water in 2007 and today 10 years later they have drilled 780 clean water wells worldwide, Wagner said. This year they expect to get close to 900 wells.

Convinced that a “for-purpose” sustainable business model could play a tremendous role in solving the water crisis, Jordan Wagner started Generosity Beverages, Inc., a for-profit company, in 2014 with his partner Micah Cravalho. While the original non-profit entity evolved to become, Generosity Beverages launched its first product under the name Generosity Water. While a completely separate legal entity, Generosity Beverages is a donor of and contributes 20% of its profits to support our programs around the world.

"Most of our water projects are made with pipes and cement. Like any mechanical device, a well will rust and breakdown over time. In fact, most wells will be in need of repair after 5 years of operation but with proper maintenance, they can have an average lifespan of over 20 years. This doesn’t mean that clean water access ends after 20 years” said Jordan Wagner.

On average, each water project serves 500 people. This number varies from community to community, but in order to maximize the efficiency and sustainability of each water point, projects are usually constructed in communities where approximately 500 people will be served.
