Founders Circle

Hidden Water is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization

Tax ID #: 47-5130674

In these #MeToo times, the demand for Hidden Water’s programs has grown exponentially. After five years as an entirely volunteer-run organization, the demand for programs has far exceeded our capacity.

In March 2019, friends of Hidden Water launched a Founders Circle to support us at this pivotal time. The aim is to generate the initial financial backing needed so we can for the first time hire staff and become eligible for multi-year grants. In order to secure this kind of funding, Hidden Water must demonstrate an existing community of support—that’s where you come in.

Our goal is to gather 100 Founders Circle members.

This is important because there is power in numbers—especially on this issue.  By coming together as a Founders Circle, we are making it safer for everyone to come forward.

Membership in the Founders Circle is a one-time contribution between $1,000 and $10,000 (tax deductible).

Please join us today.


With our deepest gratitude, we would like to acknowledge
the generosity and courage of our (still expanding) Hidden Water Founders Circle
