THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING A SUSTAINABLE ORGANIZATION
Every year, donations from individuals, private initiatives and government are fewer and smaller and spread out among a growing number of institutions, causes or events that take place in any part of the country or world.
The commitment we have to the people with disabilities and everyone we attend, is to continue offering our services, independent of the donations we receive. With this in mind, we’ve developed strategies that allow us to generate our own resources and make us less dependent on donations.
We continue to design innovative strategies and strengthen the projects we have today so that you can count on us and on our work for a long time. This is our promise.
For many years, civil society organizations worked depending entirely on donations. Their activities and impact were limited and, on occasion, even conditioned to the donors’ vision or intention.
Globalization of the business sector has made companies raise their standards when making social investments. More is demanded of the institutions that receive their donations. They want to know numbers about impact, projected growth and how they’re reinventing to work on sustainability projects that generate quicker return on the (social) investment.
The present demands that civil organizations be sustainable in order to continue in the service of our causes; otherwise, the future that awaits us and the people we serve, could be bleak.
