FAQ

Why donate to Fondo Semillas?

With your support, we can reach more mexican women.

Fondo Semillas is a non-profit organization that relies on financial resources from institutional, national and international donors, and, above all from its Individual Donor Community, to carry out its work. The Community of Donors seeks to bring together people who are willing to put their money into building a Mexico with more equality and justice.

Why does Fondo Semillas support organizations that work for gender equality in Mexico?

We fight forgender equality in México.

In our country, women earn 34.2% less than men in the workplace, even though they perform the same functions and have the same professional training. (Source: Conapred) In Mexico, 77 in every thousand pregnancies are of girls and teenagers, many of them survivors of rape, which generally truncates their possibilities to continue studying and forces them to prematurely take charge, of a new family. (Source: OECD) Every day 10 women are murdered in Mexico because of their gender, this statistic of daily femicides has increased considerably in the last three years. (Source: UN Women) Women dedicate 90% of their income to family well-being and the infrastructure of their communities, while men only invest between 30% and 40% of theirs; this reduces the intergenerational transmission of poverty. (Source: OECD) This is why Fondo Semillas provides resources to organizations that are fighting to change these realities.

Where does my money go?

We support organizations that have no other source of income.

Fondo Semillas finances organizations that generally do not have other sources of income. It is the women themselves who identify their needs, organize and propose solutions; Fondo Semillas provides them with economic resources, support and capacity building, as well as outreach to other donors, networks, alliances and strategic opportunities. Each organization we finance receives between 200,000 and 700,000 pesos in a funding cycle.

How can I verify that my money goes to organizations?

It is very important for us to keep our donors informed.

Year after year, Fondo Semillas publishes its Annual Report, where it describes the organizations’ work and the social impact we have had through supporting different groups. You can review them here: Annual Reports. In addition, when you become a donor you will periodically receive information and invitations to events where you can see the results of your contributions.
