BENEFITING: BRAZIL FOUNDATION
BrazilFoundation generates resources and makes strategic social investments in programs that transform the social reality of Brazil. The focus of BrazilFoundation's grant making is to invest in local solutions that directly impact the community and can serve as models to be replicated, potentially contributing to more effective public policies. Our goal is to afford opportunities for social leaders and their communities to take ownership of their development and thus become their own agents of change.
Each year BrazilFoundation screens hundreds of proposals from locally-based nonprofit organizations throughout Brazil, and selects from amongst the strongest applicants to receive financial and technical support. The foundation performs careful due diligence to select community-led initiatives that can achieve far-reaching impacts with even modest amounts of support. All of the selected projects represent one of BrazilFoundation’s five focus areas: Health, Education, Human Rights, Participatory Development, and Culture.
Unfortunately, each year we receive applications from more qualified candidates than we are able to support. The needs and the passion for community-led solutions far exceed our grant making capacity.
A Better Brazil Is Up To You
Our challenge to you: Be a part of the positive change you would like to see in Brazil. Help us raise $20,000 to fund one additional community-led initiative in Brazil next year.
With just one more BrazilFoundation grant, we can ensure that an after-school arts program is launched; that the rights of people with disabilities are upheld; that a group of women can achieve higher incomes for their families; or that rural students can access higher education. The possibilities are endless.
Join our campaign, and you can make this important difference for an entire community of Brazilians.
