We are a charitable foundation …

Donations can be made online via PayPal or by downloading, filling out and mailing the donation form to Rosshirt Water for Africa Foundation, 3817 Bentworth Lane, Columbus, OH 43230.

We gratefully accept donations of any amount and a tax receipt is sent to you when donations are received.

The cost of drilling a new well is $8,000 and annual inspection, maintenance and simple repairs average $800 a well. However, as with any mechanical system, wells will eventually require new pumps, motors and other structural replacement parts to ensure continued and optimal functionality – and such repairs can increase the cost of maintaining a well in any given year.
