Green for Impact Brazil – 2nd phase

Our Project Green for Impact Brazil now enters the second and last phase of contribution. We will use IAAB’s “Force for Good” online platform launched last year in partnership with Incentiv, a taxtech startup that connects the tax incentive ecosystem with NGOs and donors, providing more convenience, engagement and transparency. It is essential that all donations are made through the Incentiv platform, as this is the only way to track our community’s contribution.

Within the same INSEAD principles and values of the first phase, the second phase fundraises for three projects, prioritizing alumni-led NGOs and tax incentivized projects. All three initiatives also bring relevant national coverage and diverse objectives for impact.

Our selected initiatives are:

  1. Plan International Covid-19 Response, led by Cynthia Betti, INSEAD Alumni PGA’14, has as one of its initiatives to help girls from around the country to become leaders in their community, heading the combat against the Covid-19. Know more here.

  1. #VencendoJuntos, led by Flavio Canto INSEAD Alumni PGA’18 and supported by other 8 renowned athletes, aims at assisting 33k low-income families across the country in 3 months with basic-needs grocery packages. Know more here.

  1. IOS: Founded in 1998, IOS (Instituto da Oportunidade Social) for low-income teenagers was pushed to invest in the qualification of its instructors for the new distance learning environment, due to Covid-19. Donations to this project are tax-deductible for individuals and corporations. Know more here.

The 2nd phase will last for three months, we start today and will raise funds until August 11th

Our goal is to reach at least R$ 50k for each initiative.

We kick off with 6K donations from PayU and OnDoctor our first institutional donors. INSEAD Alumni Association Brazil (IAAB) will match with 10% up to 13K. So let’s make it happen!

This will get us to a total of R$ 150.000 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. Be an institutional partner, talk to us!

Thank you very much for your collaboration.  Know more about Green for Impact Brazil, its phases, and how to support, here.

CALL for ACTION: Green for Impact Brazil Launch Fundraise Phase 1

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.

Learn & Contribute

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.

Adicionalmente, mudamos o nosso nome para nos adequarmos a critérios de marca e estarmos todos juntos com a comunidade global engajada na luta contra a crise do COVID-19.

Project GreenCross for Brazil

Prezad@s Alumni,

O Project GreenCross foi iniciado por um alumnus MBA19D em resposta à irrupção do COVID-19 na China e hoje está se expandindo através da liderança de outros alumni, em diversos países, tais como Itália, Espanha, França, Brasil e Índia. Em seu modelo original, a iniciativa busca arrecadar fundos para compra de suprimentos hospitalares; no Brasil, buscamos analisar a viabilidade de modelo similar, e por isso, estamos em contato com o grupo global do Project GreenCross.

Nesta primeira fase, adicionalmente à compra de suprimentos que está sendo estudada, decidimos engajar imediatamente a nossa rede alumni, pelos nossos diversos canais de comunicação, para apoiar iniciativas já estabelecidas e fomentar nossa colaboração e atuação, em especial, nos projetos de nossos alumni.

Este engajamento começou na semana passada quando fizemos uma chamada de voluntários para compor esta força-tarefa e formamos um time central de 8 voluntários que vem se reunindo diariamente para buscar a melhor maneira de sermos atuantes nesta crise.

Infelizmente a contaminação está se tornando cada dia mais palpável conforme fomos informados de um caso com UTI em nossa comunidade Alumni, o que nos deixou mais apreensivos.
NÃO PODEMOS DEIXAR A FORÇA DA NOSSA REDE EM QUARENTENA. CONECTE-SE, MOBILIZE-SE!
Como ajudar?
  • Conectem-se à nossas plataformas Facebook, Linked-in, Instagram, WhatsApp e Slack (veja os links abaixo).
  • Fiquem atent@s às comunicações do GreenCross Brazil nas plataformas, nelas divulgaremos updates e pedidos de apoio específicos.
  • Tragam projetos e negócios que colaborem na resposta ao COVID-19 e seus desdobramentos.
  • Doem, comentem, compartilhem, mostrem engajamento em nossas redes sociais!
Project GreenCross for Brazil nasce apoiando o projeto OnDoctor. É um projeto de Telemedicina dos alumni, Alexandre Gattaz e Eduardo Spina, MBA16D, que precisa do seu apoio apenas na divulgação. Compartilhe em suas redes sociais e os direcionando à seus contatos chave que vocês possam ter.

Nosso sincero agradecimento do time de voluntários Project GreenCross for Brazil,

IAAB-COMMUNICATION FROM THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE

Dear fellow alumni,

Following the most recent development related to COVID-19 we have taken steps to cancel our March to May events. We hope we will be able to resume our activities in a very near future and will keep you updated as soon as possible.

As you may know, INSEAD has been monitoring the COVID-19 situation very closely, taking all necessary measures to keep its alumni and staff safe and the IAAB is in close contact with other INSEAD Alumni Associations globally and with the School. We are collaborating actively in order to offer you webinars and virtual content, launching this week a new webinar series “Navigating the Turbulence of COVID-19”.  The webinars will be broadcast twice a week and will feature up-to-date analysis and insight from our faculty on the human cost of this pandemic, the growing global impact on the economy and the business implications of COVID-19. The webinars are free of charge for our alumni. Check webinars here. 
  
You can already sign up now for the first session with Prashant Yadav, INSEAD Affiliate Professor of Technology and Operation Management on Thursday 26 March at 3 pm EST. “Coordinating Pharma and Medtech Supplies for COVID-19 Response – The Critical role of information”. For those who can’t make it a recording will be made available on YouTube after the event. Click here to register.

Our alumni community has been very active. It was inspiring to see – right at the outbreak – the reaction of MBA’19 alumni who set up the Wuhan Relief Initiative to collect medical supplies and help those in need in China. The initial project has been renamed ‘Project GreenCross’ and is targeting other geographies where the COVID-19 has been expanding and we are already in connection with them and evaluating the feasibility to create a local team in Brazil. If you have the capacity to join the Brazilian team of volunteers, please answer this form. The team has created a closed Facebook group for the INSEAD community. Simply search ‘Project GreenCross’ on Facebook  or click here and ask to join the group. We encourage you to join and support the initiative. 

You may also find updates about COVID-19 on the INSEAD’s Newsroom page.

To conclude this letter we encourage you to engage with your INSEAD friends and stay in touch, whether it is over the phone or via a virtual connection tool. Many classmates have their own WhatsApp group, do you have yours? Also, some alumni created an INSEAD SP WhatsApp group that has been very active sharing information, if you want to join ask our coordinator to add you.

We remain at your disposal if you have any questions or ideas you would like to share with us.
  
Take note that we are preparing a virtual AGO on May 6th 2020. Save the Date!

  
Stay safe! Stay at home!

Car@ Alumni INSEAD Brazil,

Concluímos mais um ano de muitos encontros, conexões, conversas e aprendizado em nossa comunidade.

Agradecemos imensamente a dedicação dos 30 Alumni voluntários que dão vida a nossa comunidade, uma das 5 mais engajadas do mundo INSEAD e benchmark local de comunidade Alumni para outros Top MBAs. Conheça nossos voluntários e conecte-se com eles aqui.

Com esforços já alinhados à visão de “Business as a Force for Good” do INSEAD, corroborada pela visita do Dean Ilan Mihov,  estamos muito motivados para adicionar ainda mais propósito e relevância à nossa comunidade com duas novas iniciativas:

  • apoiando a iniciativa INSEAD Community Impact Challenge, na redução de plásticos.

  • fechando uma parceria com a Incentiv para apoio de ONGs que já começou e crescerá em 2020 – participe e nos ajude a selecioná-las.

Também em 2020, continuaremos a evoluir e testar novos formatos de eventos e, para a busca de relevância, precisamos da participação e inputs de muitos.

Aproveitem as festas e férias com a família e nos vemos o ano que vem!
