Book on economic sustainability of Civil Society Organizations is launched in Sao Paulo
Researchers from the Coordination for Applied Legal Research (CPJA) of FGV’s Sao Paulo Law School (Direito SP) launched the book titled “Destaques: Sustentabilidade Econômica das Organizações da Sociedade Civil” [Highlights: Economic Sustainability of Civil Society Organizations]. The book was launched during the Private Social Investment Conference held on November 29-30 at the Cinemateca film library, in Sao Paulo.
The publication summarizes ongoing research projects under the Economic Sustainability of Civil Society Organizations Project, presenting data and analyses on public funding issues – such as Law No. 13.019/14 – and private organization funding, prioritizing studies on donation taxes and fiscal incentives granted to individuals.
Before the launch event, the researchers joined the panel titled “Legal framework to fund Civil Society Organizations”, which included Eduardo Pannunzio, lead researcher of the project and coordinator of the study on ITCMD (tax on mortis causa succession and donation); Augusto Hirata, coordinator of the study on Endowment Funds; Natasha Salinas, coordinator of the study on tax incentives; and Natália Aquino, researcher studying Law No. 13.019/14 and Aline Gonçalves de Souza, who participated as the moderator.
According to Souza, executive coordinator of the Project under FGV, the book summarizes all relevant information, similarly to a key facts, under the goal of sharing the partial results of ongoing research projects.
“We expect to subsidize public debate on these subjects even before the studies are completed, seeing as the partial results so far allow us to consolidate diagnoses and underline the need for changes”, she said.
The book is available in FGV’s Digital Library.
