To better understand the characteristics of member organizations and their social investment priorities, GIFE conducts a biannual survey of its members. This report highlights key findings from the 2017 survey; 116 GIFE members (90% of its 129 members) responded to questions about their 2016 activities. For the purpose of this analysis, data from community foundations have been grouped with responses from independent associations and foundations. All survey data, unless otherwise noted, refer to 2016 and are based on 116 responses. Funding amounts are calculated on a constant 2016 Brazilian Real/US Dollar exchange rate.
