  • 5. Does IDIS work on other fronts besides advisory services?

    Our work is based on the tripod of advisory, knowledge generation, and execution of impact projects, which contribute to strengthening the ecosystem of strategic philanthropy and the culture of giving.

    In the advisory, IDIS acts in a customized and participative manner, meeting the needs of the partner or client in its private social investment journey.

    In the pillar of generation and dissemination of knowledge, we produce publications, technical notes, articles, courses, training, and events.

    In Impact Projects, we idealize and implement initiatives that strengthen our ecosystem, inspire action, stimulate dialogue, influence public policy, and have a direct impact on issues considered a priority for reducing inequalities.

  • 6. Does IDIS raise funds for other organizations?

    This is not a service provided by IDIS, but the advisory team offers the service of planning for fundraising and providing guidance so that CSOs can operationalize their fundraising.

  • 7. Does IDIS have any activities related to the ESG agenda?

    Yes. We carry out strategic planning for the ESG activities of companies, institutes, and corporate and family foundations. Our methodology starts from the company’s purpose, beliefs, and values, and goes through the business needs and expectations and the perspective of the main stakeholders to design an action model that enhances the organization’s Private Social Investment (PSI). We have defined guidelines, partnerships, and necessary initiatives for the three pillars (E, S, and G), but we are seeking to develop an even more careful and specialized look at the social aspect.
