Bridging the Gap by Giving (BTG)

Shirley Adams


Fund Purpose:

The Bridging the Gap by Giving Foundation exists to impart hope by sharing provision with people who are in need by raising awareness and resources for clean water projects in developing countries.


More Info:

BTG, a donor-advised fund of North Valley Community Foundation, was founded on February 6, 2006, by Shirley Adams to raise awareness and funds for safe water projects in developing countries. Due to the generosity of individuals and corporate sponsors, BTG has raised over $600,000 (with matched funds), giving over 19,000 Africans clean water, sanitation and training in hygiene for life! BTG raises awareness and money in several ways. The largest fundraiser is our annual city-wide Walk4Water. To make the Walk4Water successful, approximately 100 community volunteers from schools, churches, and other service groups help to organize the event.
