The Quito Water Conservation Fund (Fondo para la Protección del Agua – FONAG) is an endowment fund that receives money from the government, public utilities, electric companies, private companies and non-government organizations. An independent financial institution manages and invests the money.

FONAG’s goals include: improve/maintain water quality and quantity for downstream users, maintain regular flows of water throughout the year, maintain/enhance natural ecosystem biodiversity (both freshwater and terrestrial) and improve/maintain human well-being and quality of life for upstream human communities.
