A Fundação Dom Cabral
FDC is a not-for-profit institution that believes in education as a starting point and as a way to overcome difficulties, generate sustainable development and boost major transformations.
Over our history, we developed activities to promote education, management, sustainability and citizenship, focusing on young people in vulnerability, on management for social organisations and on entrepreneurship for the bottom of the pyramid. FDC has already invested R$ 17 million in scholarships and transformed the lives of more than four thousand people.
FDC – Centro Social
Cardeal Dom Serafim
Oportunidades iguais para diminuir diferenças
Since its very foundation, FDC bets on the power of education and social transformation to create a more prosperous and inclusive world, and the FDC Cardinal Dom Serafim Social Centre is another major step towards expanding and intensifying efforts to transform the bottom of the social pyramid and creating a better society. The focus is on the development of educative actions that bring autonomy and dignity, creating opportunities to reduce inequalities.
Together we reach further.
In 2026, when FDC will celebrate half a century of history, we want to grant up to three thousand scholarships. We reckon this is a very ambitious goal, but it matches contemporary challenges and helps reduce the enormous lack of more diverse leaders Brazil needs now.
Through this Fund, we offer our vast experience and provide access to new ideas, new voices coming from different backgrounds, to help develop new leaderships and, thus, we take a decisive step towards a more plural social and economic environment.
