Thank you for visiting this site. The Macquarie Group Foundation is partnering with GlobalGiving to provide a 1-to-1 match for donations to support GlobalGiving’s Mexico Earthquake relief efforts, up to a total of at least $100,000 AUD. Please choose the project or fund that you would like to support below. To receive the match, you must donate through this site.   

GlobalGiving sends funds to both multinational organizations and local nonprofits to support immediate disaster response efforts. In the longer term, they work mostly with local non-governmental organizations to rebuild and develop the affected areas. Their experience has shown that local organizations that were there before the disaster continue to be there afterward to contribute to the community’s transition from recovery to reconstruction to development. All of the organizations are vetted by GlobalGiving to determine their legitimate, charitable status wherever they are registered.
