IDIS was born from a dream of one of the most important professionals of the social sector in Brazil. Marcos Kisil, or Dr. Marcos Kisil as he is commonly referred to due to his medical education, idealized and founded an organization that is capable of generating knowledge and applying techniques to support social investors, increasing relations between these investors and social entrepreneurs. In 1999 he founded IDIS, a nonprofit organization that has supported major Brazilian companies and families in their philanthropic journeys.
Many have joined this dream. Throughout the years, thousands of people have circulated through IDIS, be them collaborators, volunteers, board members, clients or partners that together contributed to the construction of a fair and solidary Brazil, and increased their knowledge and their ambitions of transforming the world around them.
