Mission and Objectives
The Benfica Foundation develops integrated projects emphasizing early intervention on exclusion factors. In these areas, the Foundation has the primary concern of preventing delinquency and promoting educational success of children and youngsters as crucial factors of social mobility.
Our organization aims to be acknowledged as a reference in the fields of innovation and European social accountability as well as a leader in the social sports sector across the Portuguese society and its Diaspora, being proactive and engaging in proximity actions near situations of exclusion or social weakness.
The Benfica Foundation aims to establish itself as a social partner of both state and civil society, mobilizing people and institutions and catalysing local dynamics for social development and individual and community empowerment.
Sport Lisboa e Benfica being a global club, the Foundation plans to develop an international presence covering the geo-sociological, cultural and ethnic diversity of the Benfica universe.
