Helping Brazilian non-profit organizations to achieve financial sustainability is among the principal objects of a strategic alliance between the Institute for the Development of Social Investment (IDIS) in Brazil and Resource Alliance. Among other things, it will help meet one of the challenges for the sector in Brazil: professionalizing the field of fundraising. ‘In Brazil, although we have advanced in the last ten years, we still have much to do,’ said local Resource Alliance representative Rodrigo Alvarez. ‘We have a large demand for good fundraisers, well trained and supported by specialist suppliers.’ The partnership will provide consultancy, training and information to both social organizations and social investors. In particular, there is a need to produce more material in Portuguese on the topic of social investment, which will be available on the websites of both organizations.
