An international foundation, based in Portugal, which promotes the development of individuals and organisations, through art, science, education, and charity, for a more equitable and sustainable society.
We promote wider access to culture, and the transformational power of art in the development of people and societies.
We contribute to reducing inequalities in access to education and care for the most vulnerable.
We promote knowledge, scientific research, and greater participation and involvement of citizens and civil society in building more sustainable communities.
A large team of collaborators and partners contribute daily to fulfil the mission of the Foundation.
The Foundation includes a museum, an arts centre, an orchestra and choir, an art library and archive, and a scientific research institute.
The Foundation also develops innovative programmes and projects and supports, through scholarships and grants, social institutions and organisations in Portugal, the United Kingdom and France, as well as in Portuguese-speaking African countries (PALOP) and in the Armenian communities.
