    Chose a place to host a fundraising event. Your fundraiser event might be a dinner with a fee. The money collected could then be used to buy more water. You could also ask that as well as paying the fee, you would like those who come to your event to also bring bottles of water to donate. Choose a location that is relatively cheap. You may be able to get a space for free if you offer to advertise the location on your event's marketing materials.
