FEMSA Foundation was created in 2008 on the premise that a sustainable company can only exist with sustainable communities.
FEMSA Foundation’s mission is to make social investments to have a positive impact on people’s lives and build more solid and sustainable communities where we operate. We work with more than 250 partners in 18 countries, with whom we seek to identify, replicate and scale innovative solutions and approaches.
We seek to address complex social challenges with a collaborative approach that allows us to gather more resources and have a greater impact. These are our areas of action:
We focus our actions in three areas: water and sanitation (we bring sustainable access to safe water as well as improved sanitation conditions to the communities where we operate), watershed conservation (water sources), and applied scientific research.
Early childhood, – the period that takes place from gestation up to 5 years of age – plays a decisive role in the development of our children. Early childhood development (ECD) refers to physical, cognitive, linguistic and socio-emotional development during early childhood, in an all-inclusive manner. We believe that if children have a way to develop their full potential, their communities can be transformed. On this basis, we are committed to supporting projects that promote Early Childhood Development in Latin America.
FEMSA Cultural Program
We preserve, document, consolidate and promote Latin American modern and contemporary art through temporary exhibitions, individual loans and the education and mediation programs of FEMSA Collection.
Also, with FEMSA Biennial, a cultural event where local institutions, artists and artisans participate, we foster collaboration and the exchange of ideas and knowledge around art.
