Founded in 2008 and based in Manaus/AM, the Foundation for Amazon Sustainability (FAS) is a non-profit civil society organization that disseminates and implements knowledge on sustainable development, contributing to the conservation of the Amazon.
Our goal is to take care of the people who take care of the Amazon. We help keep the forest standing, by investing in education and citizenship, community empowerment and infrastructure, income generation, environmental conservation, health, management and transparency, research, development and innovation.

CAF America is a global grantmaking organization assisting corporations, foundations, and individuals. We streamline the grantmaking process to eliminate risk and administrative burden.
US donors cannot give directly to foreign charitable organizations and obtain a tax deduction. As a US public charity, CAF America is able to accept funds from US donors who can then recommend that CAF America use those funds to support foreign charitable organizations or projects. We enable donors to support the causes they care about by assisting them in making strategic, effective, and tax-advantaged grants internationally and domestically.
International giving can be complex. With CAF America, it doesn’t have to be. CAF America and its subsidiaries have given more than $3.8 billion in charitable donations to organizations in over 135 countries around the world.
