Dear Graded Friends,

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in giving to Graded. For the past 96 years, Graded has been recognized as an educational leader, dedicated to inspiring excellence, fostering intercultural competence, and empowering students to become engaged, ethical citizens.  Like most top independent, non-profit, American schools, Graded relies upon philanthropic contributions to fulfill its mission. Tuition alone does not cover the entire cost of a child's Graded education. 

There are two ways that you may contribute to Graded:

The first option is through our Graded Annual Fund. We encourage all members of the Graded community to participate in this important effort which funds educational enrichment, scholarships, professional development, and campus enhancements. This fund supports our yearly operating budget and makes an immediate impact on every student.

The second way of giving is via the Centennial Campaign which is comprised of three strategic institutional priorities:
  • The Graded Campus Project - This multi-year project of construction, modernization, and renewal is transforming the Graded campus by investing in infrastructure and the school's future.

  • Graded Scholar Program Endowment - Through this endowed program, Graded offers life-changing, full scholarships to economically disadvantaged, exceptionally-gifted Brazilian students.

  • Excellence in Teaching Endowment - This endowed fund ensures that Graded is able to recruit, retain, and develop the world's best teachers.

Centennial Campaign Donors who contribute at a level of R$150,000+ are recognized as members of Graded's Leadership Giving Circle and are honored on Graded's Donor Wall for their extraordinary dedication to the school

It is only with the participation of all stakeholders -- current and past parents, alumni, grandparents, students, corporate and foundation partners, faculty and staff, and friends -- that Graded can reach its goals and achieve its vision for the future. We look forward to talking to you about the importance of participating. If you have any questions, comments, or would like to make a gift, please contact the Development Department at 55 11 3747-4800 ext. 134 or

We look forward to partnering with you.
