A Walk On Water events are, and will always be, free to families and all who attend.  Nevertheless, these moments we create do indeed have costs – and we rely on supporters' donations to put on each and every event. 100% of donations are filtered directly back into the charity.


Currently, donations for A Walk On Water are accepted on behalf of Variety, The Children’s Charity, which is an established 501 (c) 3 run by those in the entertainment industry. Variety inspired us to start A Walk On Water when they created the annual “Malibu Surfers Healing Autism Event” 14 years ago honoring Pat Notaro Jr., Sony Executive and father of A Walk On Waters founder.


AWOW has been waiting patiently for over a year to receive confirmation of our official tax exempt status from the IRS. Unfortunately, due to government shutdowns, this process has taken much longer than initially expected. We do; however, expect to have approval by June of this year, according to IRS projections.


In the meantime, donations may be sent to:  Variety The Children's Charity
