Welcome to The Aquascape Foundation!

Creating sustainable solutions for the world-wide water crisis

What is The Aquascape Foundation?
The Aquascape Foundation is a not for profit 501 3C organization established in 2008.  The mission of The Foundation is to create sustainable solutions for the world-wide water crisis.  The purpose of The Foundation is to promote awareness of water as our most precious resource through environmental, educational and philanthropic efforts.  One of the ways that we will accomplish this mission is by utilizing Aquascape's RainXchange® Rainwater Harvest System as a solution to bringing clean drinking water to places where people currently have no access.

The Aquascape Foundation is utilizing its core technology to end this needless suffering.  With this technology we can capture, purify and store thousands of gallons of rainwater, making it accessible and potable.  Our technology will not only bring health and wellness to a community, but with an accessible water source, children can focus on education and adults can focus on employment.  It's a smart and sustainable solution to a complex problem.  Water is Life!

What Are The Facts About The Lack of Drinking Water?
One child dies every fifteen seconds from illnesses associated with a lack of clean drinking water, and a bad level of hygiene and basic sanitation.   Four children die each minute.  5,760 children die a day.  Over 2.1 million die every year due to water related diseases.  The Aquascape Foundation is helping to end this needless suffering … one system at a time.  We found a simple solution to a complex problem – CARING.  You can help!  By joining our hands and hearts together, we can provide the solutions necessary to save lives!  Please give the gift of life – our most precious resource – WATER!
