BENEFITING: BRAZIL FOUNDATION
BrazilFoundation: "Acredite em um sonho" (Believe in a dream)
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. We receive applications from more qualified candidates than we are able to support.
That’s why we are asking you to help us fund one more project, by helping us raise $20,000 by the end of the 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.
BrazilFoundation generates resources and makes strategic social investments in programs that transform the social reality of Brazil. Our grant making is focused in three areas: Education, Human Rights, and Socioeconomic Development. Each year we select grassroots projects that will impact the community and can serve as models to be replicated, potentially contributing to more effective public policies. The Foundation performs careful due diligence to select community-led initiatives that can achieve far-reaching impacts with even modest amounts of support. In 13 years, BrazilFoundation has raised over 25 million dollars and supported more than 350 social projects in Brazil.
With a donation of US$100 or above, you will receive a copy of the recently-published book Brazil, Brasil: 10 Years – One Idea, Many Stories, written by Mauro Ventura on the Foundation’s first 10 years of existence.
