about us

The American Society of São Paulo is a civil, non-profit association founded on May 10, 1950.  The Society is led by a Board of highly skilled and dedicated volunteers, some of whom are also non-American citizens. There are four executive positions; President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary; the President must be an American citizen. Day to day administrative activity is managed by the office manager and her staff. Alow us to introduce our board and staff here:


In 2009, the General Meeting approved the formation of the President's Council. This Council is made up of ex-Presidents of the Board who are available to the Board on an advisory capacity. Every year a deserving member of our society nominated by our members is honored by the board with the Eric Poliak Award in recognition of the highest individual qualities in service to education, philanthropy, and volunteerism.

The Society acts as a liaison and promotes friendship between the membership and a variety of organizations, including the American Consulate, the American Chamber of Commerce, American schools, churches, charities, and athletic groups, to name a few by organizing social, cultural, and athletic events for its diverse  membership; encourages integration with the Brazilian society; and supporting beloved  American traditions

The American Society concentrates on three pillars for its members and community:

The human nature of giving is one of the most powerful forces. At The American Society of São Paulo, we harness the efforts of our staff and volunteers to positively impact the lives of those most in need of assistance. We’d love for you to join us in helping to improve the situations of people in need from the São Paulo community.
