Cemefi has celebrated laying the first stone of the building that will become its hub for philanthropy, civil society initiatives and corporate social responsibility – La Casa de la Filantropia y la RSE (Philanthropy and CSR House) in Mexico City.
La Casa de la Filantropia y la RSE is meant to be a place ‘where we all grow’ as it provides a meeting space to: network, learn from each other, share ideas and achievements, create, innovate, incubate and develop.
It will be a meeting place for everyone, to boost each one’s potential in the construction of a better country.
The building projects spaciousness and inspires creativity, based on four main elements: cement to reflect sturdiness, glass to reflect transparency, wood to reflect warmth and steel to reflect permanence.
There will be two main buildings: one in front hosting a reception area for exhibitions and events; a Philanthropic Information Center; an auditorium and multipurpose rooms; and a set of smaller offices suited for new initiatives or as a working place for members and visitors from all over the country and abroad.
The back building hosts Cemefi’s headquarters, and in-between will be a garden and a coffee shop, ideal for smaller everyday meetings and adaptable to larger events.
