Mexico Digital Agency RFP Issued

 Mexico Digital Agency RFP Issued

UNHCR aims to establish a powerful presence during next years in Mexico through the development of a digital fundraising program to acquire new Individual Donors.

The Private Sector Fundraising Unit in Mexico is part of UNHCR Global PSP Section, with a commitment to inspire awareness and approach the local community to feel part of UNHCR’s mission and attract a large number of individual donations and persons committed to long-term monthly contributions. In order to support this, UNHCR Mexico is calling for proposals from qualified digital agencies to provide digital acquisition services with a specific focus on paid search, display, social media advertising, retargeting and lead generation.

PSP Mexico is planning to launch its digital acquisition program in 2017 with the goal to continue investment in the digital channel during the next few years. The primary goal is to recruit new monthly donors giving USD$10/ month or higher.


The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees was established on 14 December 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly. The agency is mandated to lead and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. It also has a mandate to help stateless people.

Since its creation, the agency has helped tens of millions of people restart their lives. Today, a staff of some 8,600 people in more than 125 countries continue to help more than 60 million displaced persons. To help and protect some of the world’s most vulnerable people in so many places and types of environments, UNHCR must purchase goods and services worldwide.
