What we aim to solve

Too many children do not have access to cultural education due to lack of opportunities and funding. We provide these opportunities and seek to find a means to fund them.

ABCCNJ has provided and will continue to provide Educational Grants only in the form of scholarships to students interested in learning Afro Brazilian Arts. We offer opportunities for youth to experience and learn the Brazilian culture and history of Africans who became an integral part of Brazilian culture. ABCCNJ provides performances for the community in Afro Brazilian Arts. We offer comprehensive, high quality educational programs, lectures, workshops and presentations to encourage cultural development and awareness of Afro Brazilian culture.

Through our programs and outreach activities, including planned events, research and activities, participants can explore Afro Brazilian history, artistic, social and cultural issues. We participate in several local community cultural events throughout the year. Throughout the year we plan to invite Brazilian artists to take part in our events promoting Capoeira and other forms of Brazilian culture. Additionally, we organize public events that serve as a demonstration of capoeira and other Afro Brazilian arts. To enhance these events, we invite Brazilian artists to perform. Finally, we participate in several local community cultural events throughout the year.

Scholarships and programs have been and will continue to be made annually based on the amount of funding that is made available to ABCCNJ. Scholarships are provided to children in need.

The Executive Board Officers will contact participating Afro Brazilian Cultural Centers every three months to update the status of Scholarship recipients. We hope to continue to partner with new Centers.

ABCCNJ has provided and will continue to provide Educational Grants only in the form of scholarships to students interested in learning Afro Brazilian Arts and provides performances for the community in Afro Brazilian Arts. We have not been able to service as many students or provide as many performances due to lack of funding. We continue to reach out to the community to provide services.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
