The Institute for the Development of Social Investment has been recognised by the Best NGO Awards as the best organisation in the category of ‘Promotion of Philanthropy, Volunteering, and CSP support’ in Brazil.
The Best NGO Awards recognise good practice in governance, transparency, communication, and financing. IDIS has consistently been recognised as among the top 100 in Brazil for the past several years.
‘Receiving these awards makes me very emotional and fulfilled! We made many investments in people, processes and tools to strengthen our projects, and ending the year with this recognition reinforces that we are on the right path,’ said Paula Fabiani, IDIS CEO. ‘This is the result of the dedication of our team and council, in addition to the trust placed by our partners.’
According to IDIS, its highlights are monitoring strategic planning and indicators, investment in financial management and CRM platforms, the creation of a diversity and inclusion committee, and the growing investment in team training and development.
Recognition in this category came from the expansion of advisory projects with new clients and the strengthening of relationships with those who were already in the house; strengthening of IDIS’ projects such as endowment´s advocacy and Transforming Territories, a programme to develop community philanthropy at Brazil. Equally important were the productions in the field of knowledge, such as the 2021 Volunteer Survey, the Brazilian Endowments Outlook, the Seminar on ESG and Strategic Philanthropy, and the Brazilian Philanthropy Forum.
