Mexican Non-Profit Status (A.C.)
In the last 20 years, charitable organizations in Mexico have expanded to include fields like the environment and human rights. However, tax incentives were limited to only a few charitable purposes, despite the emergence of organizations in new public interest fields that influenced public policy and had a significant impact. For more than a decade, organizations therefore pushed for a law that recognized the social importance of civil society activities.
In 2004, the Federal Law for the Promotion of Activities Undertaken by Civil Society Organizations (“The Law on Promotion”) was enacted in order to provide a legal framework at the Federal Government level for non-profit organizations and a mechanism for the participation of non-profit organizations in the social development of Mexico. This legislation opened up possibilities for greater Government collaboration with mutual responsibility and transparency.
