for general operating support  
Fundar is a Mexican think tank that advocates for and monitors the implementation of public policies to reduce poverty and protect civil rights. In a context of increased political polarization, Fundar works with diverse coalitions to advance concrete governance reforms such as closing tax loopholes and protecting whistleblowers. It is uniquely positioned to work in partnership with rural, grassroots activists while influencing the priorities of Mexico City’s political elite. For instance, over the next two years, it will support the families of victims of human rights abuses while monitoring the implementation of the Law on Disappearance and the National Program to Prevent and Punish Torture. Similarly, it will support the campaigns of agricultural day laborers to be incorporated into Mexico's social security system. (Strategy: Inclusive Governance)
