Mexico’s Fundraising operation focuses on monthly donor acquisition by different channels. For the past few years, Digital Fundraising has been a growing area and has a key role to sustain the expansion of the fundraising operation in the country.

The growth and consolidation of this important channel require the specialization of the team and a variety of new roles within the area. One of the most important tasks is precisely the focus on driving visitors to the Private Fundraising and Partnerships (PFP) donation webpage as well as generating leads to be converted through other channels. In addition, it is key to achieve overall Instagram success that digitally supports other channels and activities, such as DRTV or Legacies campaigns, telethons, and others.
