APPLY FOR A GRANT

The Embraer Foundation’s Social & Environmental Partnership Program funds projects with an innovative approach.

NEXT CALL FOR APPLICATIONS OPENS APRIL 2018.

_

THE SOCIAL & ENVIRONMENTAL PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM

Through grants and employee engagement, the Foundation creates a positive impact in the communities where Embraer operates. 

 

_

EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT

Each project is led by an Embraer volunteer. By focusing on employee engagement,
we connect the staff with local organizations and encourage the transfer of knowledge.

In addition, the Foundation provides Embraer employees a matching strategy as a way to give back to the communities where Embraer operates. Embraer covers 100% of the administrative costs, so every dollar donated by our employees goes directly to the community.
