Resetting Our Vision: The hope for a better Brazil after 2020

During these unprecedented times, it is hard to imagine how our world will be in the future, and what that means for Brazil. Despite these uncertainties, we know that we need for a better Brazil – one with greater solidarity, collaboration, philanthropy, and, most of all, more equity.

For 20 years, BrazilFoundation has connected individuals and organizations to promote social change in Brazil. We have remained committed to our work at a critical time when Brazil’s social issues have been exacerbated and we must continue to do so in the long-term.

Brazil is, and has always been, resilient. But now, more than ever, we need to come together. We invite you to join us as we recommit to our mission of social transformation, so that we can continue to meet Brazil’s evolving social challenges.
