BrazilFoundation Creates Fund in Honor of Its Founder Leona Forman

November 29th is a very important day for BrazilFoundation, the day on which we celebrate the 80th birthday of our founder, Leona Forman. Leona’s gratitude for Brazil became a seed planted with dedication, care, and affection – a seed that has borne great fruit. In honor of her trajectory and important legacy for Brazil, today our Board of Directors announces the creation of the “BrazilFoundation Matching Fund in Honor of Leona Forman”.

“It is a joy to celebrate this day with the establishment of this fund. Leona dreamed of a future of possibilities for Brazil, believed in social transformation through collective work, and made that dream come true. Since then, she has tirelessly dedicated herself to this dream to allow a more just life with equal opportunities for all Brazilians. ” Rebecca Tavares, CEO of BrazilFoundation

The Fund was established with a donation of US$ 25,000 from the BrazilFoundation Board of Directors; and invites supporters to join BrazilFoundation in this special gesture by making a donation in honor of Leona Forman. Be part of this celebration and help BrazilFoundation continue the work of its founder!
