85970 Fundaçãoterra

This minor planet is named after Fundação Terra, or "The Earth Foundation," a Brazilian non-profit organization for providing food, housing, and assistance to poor people in the city of Arcoverde, Pernambuco, Brazil.

The symbol of this minor planet is a little tricky, because the logo of the organization is essentially identical to the symbol for the minor planet 1288 Santa. This symbol is thus a minor variation on it. It is a Christian cross with a tiny circle around the center, representing both Christianity and the Earth, with a horizontal bar on the lower right side, such that the symbol contains both the letters "T" and "F," the organization's initials.
