The 2017 earthquakes in central and southern Mexico caused an estimated $2 billion in damages, leaving communities grappling with long-term recovery as international humanitarian assistance fades. At the IAF, we strengthen the ability of local philanthropic organizations to do effective programming and unlock additional public and private resources for long-term development. Our grantee partner, Fondo Unido, supports capacity-building, knowledge exchange, and peer learning among community foundations and challenges Mexican funders to support long-term, bottom-up reconstruction efforts that help mitigate the impact of future natural disasters.
This cooperative agreement is funded in part through our Partnership to Support Post-Earthquake Recovery in Mexico.
