The Maria Carvalho Santos Foundation, located at Rua São Pedro 3113, Ilhotas, Teresina-PI, CEP 64001-260, is a non-profit charitable organization that works in the health area in an assistential and educational manner, making communities aware of breast cancer prevention and supporting the social adaptation of the person with cancer.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
