Portuguese Foundation Centre (Centro Português de Fundações)

The Portuguese Foundation Centre (CPF) was created in 1993 under the initiative of the Eng. António de Almeida Foundation, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and the Oriente Foundation. The goal of the foundation was to create a platform that would serve as the sole mediator between foundations, state authorities and other civil society organizations. To develop the practice of philanthropy in Portugal, CPF provides a networking space for organizations, hosts meetings of portuguese foundations as well as foundations of portuguese-speaking countries. Also, the CPF is focused on training for organizations and maintains a cromprehensive database of the whole sector.
