TOWARDS A NEW PHILANTHROPY
OUR UNDERSTANDING OF PHILANTHROPY
We understand Philanthropy as a set of private sector actions conducted for the public good.
In this sense, we believe that:
- Philanthropy places human beings and their actions at the center of its actions.
- Philanthropy expresses a set of values associated with human wellness, based on ethical guidelines.
- Philanthropy has no political, religious, or dogmatic affiliation.
HOW WE ENGAGE WITH THE ENVIRONMENT
We understand that a successful public policy in its diagnosis, design, implementation, and impact requires the collaboration of all sectors of society.
In the same sense, we seek to promote the so-called Virtuous Triangle: State – Private Sector – Civil Society, in the areas of action that are part of the mandate (Science, Education, Culture, and Conservation), as we understand that only in this way can we:
Therefore, our foundations and elemental reserves have stood out, since their inception, for their links not only with the community, but also with all the stakeholders involved in the fields of action in which we seek to act as a facilitator and promote the mandate.
Since its foundation, FCS has aimed to be a far-reaching initiative that crosses the work of a single generation.
This resulted in the creation of an institutional framework capable of guaranteeing the continuity of philanthropic actions over time.
This institutional framework also raised the standards of management and transparency associated with the successful development of FCS.
Subsequently, the Transversal Areas were created, whose objective is to guarantee the proper fulfillment of the mandate in each of the foundations and elemental reserves.
