Thank you for your support with our Lei de Incentivo ao Esporte project!

More to come on our Lower School Gymnasium Renovation and Graded Eagles Care Program.

Graded registered a Lei de Incentivo ao Esporte project with the Brazilian Ministry of Sports. Brazilian taxpayers were allowed to redirect a percentage of their personal and/or corporate taxes via a federal tax law for the promotion of athletics.  

Graded's project is registered under the number: PROCESSO SLIE 1915674-00/ PROTOCOLO 71000050774201948

The project includes the renovation of Graded's  Lower School Gymnasium. Funds will cover expenses including retractable bleachers, "floating" wooden flooring, and new materials and equipment. The enhancement will also include tournament opportunities for São Paulo public school students. 


As its very name suggests, the law Lei de Incentivo ao Esporte was created to encourage the practice of sports throughout Brazil.

The government will allow the redirection of taxes to fund projects registered under this law, as long as there is a valid community service component related to the promotion of athletic activities.

Graded will comply with this requirement through the creation and application of the Graded Eagles Care Program. Once the gymnasium renovation is complete, Graded will host ten Graded Eagles Care events for public school children.

Children will play sports (basketball, football, futsal, volleyball, and tennis) for a day and participate in activities in accordance with the United Nation's sustainable development goals (SDGs). Activities will be organized by Graded service learning clubs.
