For the past three years, Hill Country Alliance, a nonprofit organization that raises awareness and builds support for preserving the natural resources of the Central Texas Hill Country, has been hosting the Rainwater Revival. The day-long, free, annual event educates and inspires Hill Country homeowners and business owners about the many benefits of rainwater harvesting as a primary or supplementary source of water.

The event features presentations by industry experts, practicing professionals, and users of harvested rainwater. Vendors for rainwater harvesting businesses and conservation organizations are also on hand to share information with attendees. Donors provide art and exhibits for auction and funds generated at the auction are awarded to local area schools for rainwater harvesting-type projects. In 2012 the alliance raised $2,700 which will be awarded to three schools in the Hill Country.
