Why we need your help

Millions of people in Brazil live at the intersection of some the toughest global issues: income inequality, environmental degradation, lack of access to basic services, human rights violations, and systemic racial discrimination–all exacerbated by the current pandemic and economic crisis.

And while thousands of Brazil’s innovative initiatives deliver solutions, now, more than ever, they need funds to keep their doors open. Your support can help ensure the long-term survival of these initiatives that provide a lifeline to Brazil’s most vulnerable.

In 2020, the year of the COVID pandemic, the contributions and collaboration of civil society organizations like BrazilFoundation have become even more important. [...] For a long time, BrazilFoundation has been committed to fighting racism, reducing vulnerability, and combating social inequalities. That’s why they deserve our support.

Flavia Oliveira, Journalist

[BrazilFoundation] is very important because they not only provide their grantees financial support, but training and other opportunities as well. Their support provides the possibility of sustainability.

BrazilFoundation is a non-profit organization, designated as a Public Interest Civil Society Organization (OSCIP, as per its initials in Portuguese) under Law 9.790/99, Ministry of Justice file no. 08071.000389/2004/01, Corporate Taxpayer Registration No. 04.839.572/0001-10. A donation receipt can be issued for donations made in reals. The donor must request their receipt directly from the BrazilFoundation.

An individual donor may report the amount donated when filing income tax, but will not receive a tax incentive.
