The Macedonian community of Brazil refers to the group of ethnic Macedonians living in Brazil or their descendants.

An estimated 45,000 people in Brazil are of Macedonian ancestry. The Macedonians can be primarily found in Porto Alegre, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Curitiba.

By 1947 Macedonian Migrants in all corners of the world had commenced an appeal to raise funds in an effort to assist the Macedonians in Macedonia to build hospitals and medical centres. This was coined the "Hospital Appeal". Brazilians of Macedonian descent helped to raise money for the hospitals. A total of $154,000 was raised by Macedonian migrants all over the world.

The following inscription appears on a plaque at the hospital in Skopje a tribute to the Macedonian Diaspora.
