Project M seeks to discover the needs for the strengthening of the organizations allied to Hispanics in Philanthropy (HIP) that accompany migrants in America.

This initiative, in partnership with Civic House, Kubadili and Wingu, aims to expand and improve the operations and services of the organizations so that they can offer an effective response to the needs of the migrant, refugee and forcibly displaced population on the continent.

Within the framework of the project, the M Community was organized, a broad and dynamic network of organizations with their own diverse histories and challenges. Through it, conversations that build bridges for encounter and collaboration were fostered.

In addition, training resources have been developed on Organizational Adaptability, Sustainability and Impact, Digital Transformation and Collective Care.

An example of this is Knowledge Path. It is a digital platform developed by Wingu with interactive content that allows training paths tailored to each person and organization on adaptability, financial sustainability, digital transformation and racial profiling.

Research was also conducted to discover the needs and possibilities of HIP beneficiary organizations in: Use of technologies, Leadership strengthening and organizational adaptability, Operational management, and Financial strengthening and sustainability. The research approach was mixed and divided into two stages. The first quantitative stage was carried out through a survey sent to all HIP beneficiary organizations. The second consisted of qualitative interviews to cover the diversity of territories, sizes, services provided and situation of the migrant population.

The estimated population served by the 87 HIP partner organizations.


Of the organizations that were part of the process, they have stated that they have established collaborative ties with others in the last year.


Of the participating organizations are located in Mexico and the United States.


Wingu’s accompaniment work in partnership with the aforementioned institutions has had a positive impact on the organizations and their beneficiaries.

  • 68% of the organizations that participated in this process are located in Mexico and the United States. Migrants are the population that receives the most support from these organizations.
  • 100% of the organizations that took part in the process have stated that they have established collaborative ties with others in the last year. 100 members of some of these organizations participated in the Knowledge Path experience developed by Wingu.
  • The total estimated impact of the population served by the 87 HIP beneficiary organizations is 561,062 people.

The main general findings of this research are:


Organizations that have frequent instances of reviewing team agreements, at the same time carry out practices to sustain effective processes and adapt to internal and external needs;


The more salaried employees the organizations have, the lower the frequency of review of team agreements and the lower the frequency of feedback to the population they support and vice versa;


The larger the organization’s budget, the lower the frequency of review of team agreements and vice versa;


Organizations with larger budgets show greater use of social networks, diversification of their donation sources and sustainability over time.

Other highlights include:

  • One of the constants of the organizations has been the defense of human rights, mainly through the dissemination of migrants’ rights.
  • Legal accompaniment is one of the main activities of the organizations.
  • The care of migrants and the economic resources available in the face of the pandemic were a considerable factor in terms of finances, health and humanitarian assistance protocols, and access to shelters and hostels by the population served.
