Established in 1999, the Institute for the Development of Social Investment (IDIS, in Portuguese) is a public interest non-governmental organization that was a pioneer in providing technical support and consultancy for social investors in Brazil and Latin America. IDIS facilitates the participation of individuals, families, companies and communities in strategic social actions that bring social change and help reduce social inequalities in the country. Committed to promote and structure private social investment as a tool for the development of a more equitable and sustainable society, IDIS acts in two ways: by developing proactive initiatives and by meeting the demand for technical support of companies, foundations, institutes, families and individuals.
