GIFE – Group of Institutes, Foundations and Companies, is the association of social investors in Brazil. It currently has 160 members who, added together, invest about R$ 2.9 billion per year in the social area, either through their own projects or enabling those of third parties.
iCS is proud to announce that Tatiana Zanotti, its Administration and Finance manager, is now a member of the GIFE Audit Committee. With the new bylaws of GIFE, the function of the fiscal council has undergone an important change: it is no longer restricted to the accounting analysis and management of the statements and has become a controlling area.
Luiza Souza, the manager of Institutional Development and Partnerships, is now involved in the coordination of the Thematic Network of Grantmaking, which was created in 2018 to be an area for learning and exchanging experiences in order to promote, qualify and expand the practice of grantmaking in Brazil. Launched during the table “Culture of donation and grantmaking: overcoming barriers for a more donor country” at the 10th GIFE Congress, RT aims to be a network of dialogues and proposals where donor institutions can share experiences, data and solutions and also talk about the difficulties in the process of giving more and better in Brazil.
