15th Annual Thomas H. Lake Lecture

Scott Harrison, founder and CEO of charity: water, explores the 21st century face of charity. Scott will share his unique story of rediscovering his lost faith that brought him face-to-face with the global water crisis. He leveraged technology and innovation to reinvent charity and build America’s largest private funder of international water programming, and along the way, transformed the traditional form of charity. Scott founded the non-profit organization charity: water in 2006. Turning his full attention to the global water crisis and the world’s 663 million people without clean water to drink, he created public installations and innovative online fundraising platforms to spread international awareness of the issue. Scott was recently recognized in Fortune Magazine’s 40 under 40 list and he is currently a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader.
