We can help you make a real difference to our natural world. As a non-profit foundation we are dependent on the generous support from individuals, companies and other organisations who share the mission of ARAÇÁ.
We strive to use every donation as effectively as possible, with all funds directly supporting project activities on the ground, and only minimal expenditures on administration and reporting.
All finances are reported on an annual basis and will be made available from our homepage.
Donations can be currently made through the Foundation registered in Sweden under the name "Antonelli Foundation for Biodiversity Research and Conservation Insamlingsstiftelse". This non-profit charity is overseen by the County Administrative Board in Gothenburg (Länsstyrelsen i Göteborg) under Sweden’s foundation law (stiftelselag). The Foundation is governed by the Foundation Board, consisting at its inception of three members who work on a voluntary basis: Anna Antonelli, Alexandre Antonelli and Johan Berg.
