Live Benefit Raises US$245,000

 
Our Live Benefit on September 12th was a great success! We celebrated BrazilFoundation’s 20th anniversary and renewed our commitment to promoting sustainable development, equal opportunities and social justice in Brazil. Thousands of people watched the Live from around the world, helping us raise US$ 245,000 which will be invested in more social impact initiatives.

Our fundraising events are always made possible with the help of many hands. Due to the pandemic, this year we had the challenge of adapting our event, for the first time, to be completely online – of course, while following all safety protocols. The help we received to make this possible went beyond our expectations! We’d like to thank each and every person who helped make this important fundraising night possible, especially at such a critical time for social initiatives!
