The Cause

Three years after Brazil’s biggest environmental disaster in Mariana (MG) another dam has collapsed, this time in Brumadinho (MG). As we did for the disaster in Mariana, we are now mobilizing resources through the #AbraceMinasGerais campaign to support at least 4 initiatives that have a record of trustworthy, serious work to help the affected region rebuild and recover in the long-term. The initiatives will be chosen through a call for proposals.

Our vision is to  provide civil society organizations with financial resources and technical support and to strengthen partnerships and networks, helping to create a legacy for a better quality of life in the region for years to come. All proceeds from this event will go towards these projects.


Minas Fund
