Class 6: Tools You Can Use  - 
 
Given that I am in Brazil, I had never used US research tools for learning about local organizations. So I took the opportunity to research about Brazil Foundation a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit that fundraises in the US to support social projects in Brazil. They are very famous around here as well. I found it very interesting the results I got and learned more about them and how serious they are.

4.5 Business, foundation, nonprofit organizations and personal activism. All of them have strengths and limitations but it all comes down to what you want to achieve as a donor and as an activist. Hardly most people will be able to participate by using all of the four vehicles but impact and sustainability can be easier reached when we do a conscious and thorough option.

3.6 It is clear that Soledad focused on increasing impact instead of increasing number of beneficiaries. It is an option that has to be done when you just can't have both at the same time.

2.6 it does not depend on resources or recognition, but on values. Anyone can do it!

1.6 Family. Sharing values with family, philanthropics one, is what comes as highly important from Doris and Warren interview. We start changing the world by changing and doing it right with our families.

Hi there everyone! This is Joao Paulo, or just jP, from Brazil. I work for a local organization that supports donors in Brazil - IDIS - and I am also a donor myself, but unfortunately I don't have as much I would like to donate. I am pleased to be here and meet everyone!

Hi, I am looking forward to starting the course soon.  I too am a donor and I also support many different organisations where and when I can.  I am looking forward to getting to know people through this course that have similar goals.

4.2 I do understand that the classes reflect the american reality, but at the some moments I see there's a lot to learn and compare to the Brazilian.Over head and good salaries are, as I believe, a necessity in order to have better outcomes to society. Here, however, we are still struggling on how to actually be able to pay the existing employees, and not how to pay a good salary.

2.2 Children. I am a father of two girls, one and three years old, and since they were born I realized that children being able to live a proper and happy life was the issue that more moved me.

1.2 Tocqueville's opinion is not only relevant until now, but quite right when comparing american society to other countries, like mine, Brazil.

I think the family structure and the less likeliness of transient moving around, make for a different kind of society.   Someone with roots in Sao Paulo is not as like to move to Brasilia.  Someone with family ties all in Rio is not likely to move to Recife.  In the USA we move big city to small town and the reverse.  In a country like Brazil, it seems more prevalent to move out of the country to make bigger money elsewhere and return to their Brazilian roots.  With extended families in one place, people are less isolated and less likely to have to fend for their own needs, in the case of shortcomings.  Any country with a strong sense of family, (wonderful Latino trait)  are less likely to look to the government for rescue, or to charity organizations for help.  At least, this is what I have seen.
