Autores/Participantes : João Paulo Vergueiro, Marcia Kalvon Woods, Marcos Paulo de Lucca-Silveira, Marketa Jerabek, Pietro Rodrigues

The COVID-19 pandemic has sparked an unprecedented wave of philanthropy in Brazil. Foundations, in particular, have played an important role in financing relevant scientific work, supporting public policies, and assisting nonprofit organizations and vulnerable communities. During this period, foundations have been subject to three major innovations: use of social intelligence for the provision of donations and social goods, new technology that can coordinate fundraising campaigns and mobilize civil society support, and shifts in the modus operandi of foundations. This article contributes to the literature on philanthropy by providing an analysis of the role of Brazilian foundations and their innovations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
