Philanthropy in Brazil - Summary Report



There is general agreement that Brazil’s philanthropy sector is growing, but not very fast, and certainly not in proportion with the country’s growing wealth. It has yet to fulfil what most see as its full potential. Brazil is currently the world’s ninth largest economy, with the eighth largest number of billionaires in the world, yet it ranks as 75th in Charities Aid Foundation’s (CAF’s) 2017 World Giving Index.
