What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Imagina Children's Foundation aims to aid in the lack of educational, cultural, and recreational spaces in the developmental polygon of Los Castillos. We want to fund a space with different sources of information that encourage students to be creative and become critical thinkers, as well as awaken a joy for knowledge, investigation, and learning. Our three principles that Imagina intends to perpetuate throughout further work are education as an agent of change, help and assist underprivileged children by empowering them through programs that increase literacy, foster artistic creativity and leverage technology to mold their futures and designed to become self-sufficient over time.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Pre - K & Kindergarten

Imagina provides a learning space offering early childhood education to underprivileged children between the ages of 3-5, prior to the commencement of education at primary school. The Pre-K and Kindergarten are incorporated to the department of education (SEG) and offer personalized methods, programs by project and Montessori equipment. Subjects incorporated into the programs include but are not limited to math, culture, art, and language skills. There are currently 3 grades and a rapidly increasing demand that they are opening another classroom to bring opportunities to children on the waiting list.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

As a fundraising arm for Imagina Children's Foundation, our goals are to raise funds to support the various programs provided to the children in the community. Imagina would like to maintain attention with quality and in a holistic way, to constantly train staff, and to have 1200 students participate in more than 40 workshops.


Imagina Children's Foundation engages in multiple campaigns to support the children and the families in Leon, Mexico.

Equity strategies

Last updated: 05/24/2022

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
