Tedx Seattle Talk: How to Kill Your Charity

August 1, 2013
Hauser Institute

Watch Eric Stowe, founder and director of Splash, and Course in Exponential Fundraising June 2013 cohort member, deliver his TEDx Seattle talk, and long-range vision, How to Kill Your Charity.

Eric Stowe is the Founder and Director of Splash, an international nonprofit dedicated to clean water for kids living in urban poverty. This quickly scaling organization ensures safe water daily for more than 250,000 children in orphanages, schools, shelters, and hospitals in 7 countries— and Splash will soon be doing so for more than 1 million children. More important than getting safe water flowing, though, Splash is keenly focused on making sure their projects last by building the local businesses and support that will replace their charity for the long haul. Splash thus wants to be one of the first water organizations to achieve long term success by “killing their organization” in every country they work in.
