SL Benfica

Fundação Benfica (Benfica Foundation) is a non-profit organisation, created on the 27th of January of 2009, recognised as the first foundation to be created within a Portuguese football club, Sport Lisboa e Benfica, embodying the Club’s own social awareness.

Our mission is to conceptualise, plan and implement projects dealing with social, educational, environmental and health issues as a way to contribute to the quality of life of the human being, in particular of children and young adults in a social risk situation, by also promoting inclusive sports.

This campaign brings visibility to what European Football develops socially

“The squad cooperates throughout the season with the Foundation to fulfill several social initiatives where we know that our support makes all the difference. Congratulations to this campaign that brings visibility to what the European Football develops socially.”

André Almeida, SL Benfica Player


I'm well aware of the social role of sports clubs

“I’ve personally participated on a social project of Benfica Foundation and so I’m well aware of the social role of sports clubs and the huge impact they can make on people’s lives. That’s what I’ve done!”

Janice Silva, SL Benfica Futsal Player


Fundação Benfica had huge importance on my life

“Benfica Foundation had huge importance on my growth and my life also. I’ve learned to wait and be patient. I’ve also learned to respect others and their differences. The Foundation made and still makes me smile a lot. I’m very grateful to all that watched me grow!”
