What Smart Rain’s Donation Will Do for Schools Throughout the U.S.

Smart Rain is a smart irrigation technology company. We're also a charitable organization focused on improving lives through wise water consumption and conservation. We truly believe in saving water. Water conservation means saving money, and who doesn't want some extra cash in their pocket? This summer, we're creating an initiative for greener landscapes and greenbacks for those who matter most to us: children. The Smart Rain Foundation's first initiative is aimed at helping kids succeed in education.

The Problem:

The United States has a 150 billion-dollar funding gap for education. As a result, kids are going hungry over the weekend, and our young people are suffering from a mental health crisis. Suicide rates are on the rise, and even our teachers are struggling with anxiety and mental health issues.

Smart Rain Has a Solution for this Problem: Smart Rain for Smart Kids™

We are committed to helping a hundred thousand schools, and we will donate 213 million dollars to schools that will help schools save water and give more money back to kids.

Our donation to schools will come in the form of smart irrigation controllers. These controllers will provide 24/7 water management for school properties. They can monitor environmental conditions and ensure grass and landscaping receive the right amount of water each day. Our commercial smart irrigation systems allow schools to keep their property green while saving money and conserving water.

We estimate that each controller will save schools $5,700 on average per year on their water bill. Our hope is that schools will use the funds from those savings to help teachers and students. As part of our donation, we work with schools to set up a plan where districts will send those savings right back to the classroom.

Unlike a one-time monetary donation, a smart irrigation controller donation will provide savings that districts can reallocate to students and teachers year after year. It truly is a gift that will keep on giving.
