MEXICO

Our Mission

As others build walls, we seek to build bridges, uniting peoples.

Our Strategy and Focus

To support Mexican non-profits and activists working on issues aligned with the mission and values of the greater Threshold community, from human rights and indigenous land rights to women's rights, sustainability and agriculture, art and culture, journalism and freedom of expression, drug policy, and of course the immigration crisis.

 

Mexico is at a moment of crisis and opportunity, with both threats from the Trump administration and hope for that of Lopez Obrador. The paradox of modern Mexico presents an opportunity for us to not just visit but to deeply encounter our neighbors to the South, to not just visit but to make a difference with our philanthropy.

Grant Cycle Guidelines:

1

We prefer to fund smaller organizations (generally budgets under $1.5M) where a Threshold grant can have a significant impact on our grantee partners' work.

2

We prefer to work on issues which are critical but not as visible to the public due to a lack of media coverage and therefore don’t come to the attention of other funders.

3

We fund both 501(c)(4) and 501(c)(3) organizations that work within Mexico and in the United States.
