The Brazilian Foundation was launched by a group of Brazilian friends, who came together to offer their volunteer experience in favor of the local community.

The Brazilian Foundation is based in Houston, TX and was officially formed in March 2015. We have a strong presence in the Tri-State area (aka the New York Metropolitan Area). Our projects focus on the following areas: Art & Cultural, Education, and Information.

Our activities include art exhibit, scholarships, professional qualification courses, workshops, fundraising events, festivals, volunteer opportunities, community media, informative guides and partnership with other institutions.



We are a 501c3 non-profit organization that promotes art and cultural education to preserve Brazilian traditions and support the Brazilian community in the United States and beyond.



Be recognized as a key non-profit organization to the point our activities expand with excellence beyond the United States' territory.



Each cause is embraced with detail, respect, honesty, and integrity. Our work is based on cooperation, transparency, competency, efficiency, and confidence. The Brazilian Foundations embraces sustainability and social responsibility.
