charity: water creates high-end office experiences on a non-profit budget.
charity: water’s mission is to bring clean and safe drinking water to communities around the world that don’t have access to it through fundraisers and awareness-building. The operational budget is supported by a separate pool of donors and charity: water inspires vendors to donate or discount their products and services so that charity: water can put 100% of public donations they receive towards clean water.
As charity: water's office manager, Jordan wears many hats, including overseeing their office move and the build-out of their new space. They host many high-end donor events on a weekly basis, so Jordan uses the services on Managed by Q’s marketplace to maintain an efficient, beautiful, and cost-effective space. The office is like her baby and she treats it that way.
“Managed by Q has given me time back in my day to focus on high-priority tasks. It’s great I can call on an expert to paint or hang shelves so I can focus elsewhere.”
