The mission of the Francisco Manuel dos Santos Foundation is to promote and deepen the knowledge on the Portuguese reality, thereby contributing to the development of society, the consolidation of citizens' rights and the improvement of public institutions. 

Over the last decade and a half, the Foundation created Pordata, a database with statistical information from dozens of national and international official entities, published 75 studies and 260 books on the Portuguese reality.

Because informed citizens are better prepared for deep and independent thinking.
