BrazilFoundation is a new source of support to grassroots organizations that tend to be 'below the radar' of traditional funding institutions.

Programs

BrazilFoundation's one-year grants are designed to encourage transformative innovation at the grassroots level in the areas of education, health, human rights, participatory development, and culture. An integral aspect of BrazilFoundation's annual grant making is its Capacity Development Program, a social entrepreneurship 'boot camp' in which leaders from grantee organizations are given basic training in managing their organizations.
