Fundação Oriente

The Fundação Oriente was created on 18 March 1988 and is a non-profit-making private law organisation with established legal status.

The Fundação was established by the Sociedade de Turismo e Diversões de Macau (STDM) as part of the conditions imposed by the Macao Administration for the concession of exclusive gambling rights in Macao until 31 December 2001.

Being one of the twenty largest European foundations, classified according to total assets, the Fundação Oriente is a founding member of the European Foundation Centre (EFC). This association is based in Brussels and brings together around 200 of the leading European foundations, in addition to co-operating with 7,000 non-profit-making organisations in 35 countries. In Portugal, the Fundação Oriente led the process to create the Portuguese Foundation Centre (CPF), which was started in 1993 in association with the Fundação Eng. António de Almeida and the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian.

The Foundation is headquartered in Lisbon and has delegations in Macao, India and East-Timor.
