Channeling donations so they make the right impact is never easy. We vetted three institutions actively working in urban and rural areas in the states of Puebla, Morelos, Chiapas and Oaxaca, all of them highly respected and with a clear track record of making very good use of their funding. Some have offered to match each dollar collected through this medium 1-to-1.
These institutions are:
Fundación Comunitaria Puebla IBP (which works directly in the rural area of Atlixco and the mixteca poblana one of the closest areas to the epicenter) https://www.facebook.com/fundacioncomunitariapuebla/
Fideicomiso Fuerza México (an arm of Fundación Río Arronte working in collaboration with other important institutions in Mexico City and Puebla) http://www.fgra.org.mx
Compromiso Social Citibanamex (an institution that has demonstrated its commitment to social causes in Mexico over many years) https://www.banamex.com/compromiso-social/quienesSomos.html
Unfortunately, these foundations only accept donations via international wire transfers, which can make it hard for people to contribute. We set up this page to consolidate online donations, and we will evenly distribute all funds raised among the three institutions above.
We know that many people take advantage of situations like this for personal gain, and that it's hard to know who to trust. If you would like to contribute to this effort but are uneasy about donating here, here is the wiring information for these three institutions:
Fundación comunitaria Puebla Reconstrucción 19S
Bank: BBVA Bancomer
Fideicomiso Fuerza México
Bank: BBVA Bancomer
Fomento Social Banamex, A.C.
We know that there are many other places and people in need these days, and we know that many of you have already helped elsewhere. Thank you very much for considering donating to this worthy cause and help people return to their normal daily lives, in the many urban and rural communities affected by these two devastating earthquakes.
