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
FEMSA Cultural Program contributes to the greater knowledge and appreciation of modern and contemporary Latin American art through various initiatives. One of them is FEMSA Collection, made up of more than 1,200 works by iconic artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. Since 2000, more than 12.2 million people in 18 countries have seen pieces of our collection thanks to our exhibition programs and artworks loans.
Our Cultural Program also carries out the FEMSA Biennial. Created 27 years ago, this project encourages and promotes artistic creation in Mexico through a collaborative model.
