Manuel António da Mota Foundation


On December 18, 2009, by means of public deed in Oporto, the Manuel António da Mota Foundation was set up and officially recognized on November 19, 2010.

The Foundation constitutes the contemporary and natural corollary of the matrix and philanthropic tradition of the Mota-Engil Group, on the path of the legacy of its founder, Manuel António da Mota.

The Manuel António da Mota Foundation is an important instrument of the social responsibility policy of the Mota-Engil Group, as an organised and systematised reflection of its ethical and socially committed management, in favor of active and participative corporate citizenship.

Instituted by Mota-Engil Group and by the Mota family, the Manuel António da Mota Foundation, in view of its core business matrix, tries to meet a strategic vision generating value in the long term, based on the broadest principles of sustainable development achieved through a coherent and structured social responsibility policy of which it is the vehicle par excellence.

The purpose of the Manuel António da Mota Foundation, with head office in the city of Porto, includes the promotion, development and support of social initiatives in the area of charity and social solidarity, and cultural initiatives in the areas of education, health, environment, and organisation and support to artistic activity, pursuing its goals all over the national territory and in the countries in which the Mota-Engil Group is present.

The Foundation instituted on a permanent basis an annual award named “Manuel António da Mota Award”, with the Mota-Engil Group as sole sponsor, and even though existing just since 2010, is currently one of the most renowned awards in Portugal in the area of Social Solidarity.
