As the world faces the consequences of the pandemic caused by the new Coronavirus, the BRF Institute launches the Our Part for the Whole Fund, which selects and invests resources in initiatives in the communities where the Company is present.

In addition to working with other topics recurring to the pandemic, the project has four fronts: Health and Emergency Actions; Generation of Work and Income; Education and Technological Inclusion and Food Security and Social Protection. Each one has different registration deadlines and maximum amounts per project that can be checked in the notice for registration. “Our goal with the notice is to deal with the challenges that are being encountered in the municipalities where we operate and bring consistent and sustainable solutions,” says Bárbara Azevedo, Manager of the BRF Institute.

 The notice seeks to receive proposals from Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), municipalities, state governments and other public agencies at the municipal or state levels, as well as proposals submitted by for-profit hospitals that serve the SUS network.
