Donation of goods

Did you know that it is possible to donate a property to the Hospital da Baleia?

With its sale, the Institution raises a substantial amount that can help a lot to save lives. Even if it is restricted by usufruct, the property can be used as a donation to Baleia.

Donation of real estate without restriction: it has to be formalized by a Public Deed, which can be done in any Notary's Office. After that, send the deed to the Real Estate Registry Office and your donation is made. Communicate the fact to the Friends Network.

Donation of real estate with restriction: if the property is in usufruct, the usufructuary shall have the right to use, lend, rent and enjoy the property while it is alive. The ownership of the property will only be transferred to the Foundation after the death of the usufructuary. The property cannot be sold while the usufructuary is in his possession.

Donation limits: by law, those who wish to donate their assets and have descendants (children) or living ascendants (parents, grandparents) can only donate a maximum of 50% of their assets.

Encourage donations

How about turning special occasions into opportunities to help Whale?

Bazaars, birthdays, artistic presentations, sports competitions, social gatherings at work can turn into solidarity actions. We provide materials for publicity at your event, such as a flyer with the Institution's donation channels and banner, and, depending on the amount collected, we publish your incentive on our official channels.

Solidarity products

In this option, there is a mobilization on the part of the partner who wishes to promote a product or service in favor of the Hospital with the objective of passing on a percentage or quantity of the collected products. The Special Products line is based on specific demands.

This new profile includes school campaigns, direct sales to companies, new points of sale, new range of products offered by the Bazaar, promotion of products via the internet. In the case of special products, the demands and counterparts must be assessed on time, as well as the terms and contracts for the execution of the project.

Meet some of the items already produced by the Institution:

You can also develop an exclusive product that will be sold at your point of sale, or even allocate part of the sale of your product to Hospital da Baleia. Contact us: (31) 3489-1654 or rededeamigos@hospitaldabaleia.org.br

Legal tax

The Hospital da Baleia, through specific projects, is enrolled in Federal Government programs for individuals and companies to allocate part of the Income Impsoto to our Institution. The modality we are currently raising funds through the FIA ​​(Childhood and Adolescence Fund), authorized by Federal Law No. 8.069 / 90, which was created to raise funds for the fulfillment of policies, programs and actions for socio-family support, protection and defense of the rights of children and adolescents in situations of violence and social risk.

Soon, we will have new projects registered in Pronon (National Support Program for Oncological Care) and in the Elderly Fund. Wait!

The transfer of funds is made through a Public Call Notice. This can be done in two ways: CHANCELA AUTORIZATIVA or FIA GENERAL. The first modality serves entities that have projects approved by the State Council for Children and Adolescents (CEDCA) and do their own fundraising in companies or individuals. Of this funding, 20% goes to the universality of the State FIA, which characterizes the second modality, where the Council, with the balance available at universality, issues a Public Call * to Entities with less chance of raising its own funds.

* In 2017, the board did not issue any public notice for any of these modalities. However, if it is the wish of the taxpayer, he may allocate it to the FIA ​​Geral, which will serve entities in general, including the Hospital da Baleia.
