CALL for ACTION: Green for Impact Brazil
Launch Fundraise Phase 1 – Fundo Volta por Cima
As you have been following our weekly updates in our engagement with Project Green for Impact, we are here now to launch our fundraising phase 1, with a special initiative that strongly connects with our vision of INSEAD and Business as a Force for Good.
Given the high number of projects aimed on the supply of medical appliances, we decided to focus on where we have more value to add. Thus, over the last two weeks, our group of volunteers actively sought initiatives that meet the following expected criteria: (i) high relevance; (ii) coordinated by credible partners; and (iii) our contribution (financial and other actions) would have a material impact.
In this context, we selected the “Turnaround Fund for Businesses in Low-income Communities” partnering with Pérola Bank and Agência Articuladora de Negócios de Impacto da Periferia (“ANIP”). ANIP is an entity formed by Artemisia, A Banca and FGVCenn and acts as an articulator to support social impact business in low-income communities.
Learn more about the initiative and how you can contribute. We will send daily updates on our numbers through our social media channels, so be connected.
Our goal is to reach at least R$ 50k in 5 days to support selected impact businesses.
We kick off with a donation of R$ 5k by PayU, our first institutional donor. INSEAD Alumni Association Brazil (IAAB) will match with another R$ 5k donation IF we achieve an additional R$ 50k until 19-apr-20. So let’s make it happen!
This will get us to a total of R$ 60.000 or more!
We welcome you as an individual, your company or any person from your network, to donate, helping us achieve this goal and generate lasting impact in Brazil.
WE CANNOT LEAVE THE POWER OF OUR NETWORK IN QUARANTINE, CONNECT, MOBILIZE!
Join us in this task-force, by:
- Volunteering to join our team.
- Being engaged through our communication channels and responding to our team specific requests.
- Helping our fundraising goals by donating and spreading our call.
MANY THANKS FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE, STAY SAFE!
