Statement of Purpose
Create a database of civil society and donor organizations in Mexico to strengthen the philanthropic sector. The project is to design and implement a social investment database that compiles basic information about Mexican donors, the amount of their donations/grants, the issue areas they support, their programs and procedures, and the organizations they fund. The database benefits: Mexican civil society organizations (CSOs) seeking funds, Mexican and international individual, corporate and foundation donors, policy makers, government, academia and media, and the general public.
The project is central for the expansion of the Mexican non-profit sector as it builds capacity, develops infrastructure, increases transparency & accountability and makes the different actors (grantees and grant-makers) more efficient.
