SITAWI's mission is to develop financial infrastructure for the social sector in Brazil. We believe that adequate funding and effective counseling strengthen social organizations and increase their impact on the causes and beneficiaries. In the long run, the more resources - in volume and forms - available to the social sector, the more encouragement social leaders have to develop more innovative and sustainable models with greater impact. And sooner we will build a better country.

Hello!

For the consistency of our commitment to stakeholders, this month we received the prize of Most Transparent Organization from the Associação Brasileira de Captadores de Recursos – ABCR (Brazilian Association of Fundraising).

“This prize is the seal of our work and values. Having this stamp is very important. But SITAWI Finance for Good’s most important asset is the people and the connections” said Renata Linhares, our Fundraising Coordinator, in the prize ceremony last day 5 th in São Paulo.

You're part of this success! Thanks to you we can improve the social and environmental sector in Brazil :)
