About Us

Fundación Compromiso is an organization that was born in 1994 with the purpose of helping to enhance the impact of social projects in Argentina and the broader region, carried out by NGOs, leaders, alliances between companies, the State, and social actors.

 

Inspired by Peter Drucker's work and philosophy for managing the knowledge produced by organizations to achieve social change across sectors, Compromiso helps change agents understand what they do, who they serve and how they do it, focusing on what they value and in the impact they achieve by doing so. Currently, Compromiso works jointly with impact investors in the region to generate and strengthen opportunities in the cultural, social and environmental fields.
