To give meaning to the legacy of his predecessors Vasco Maria Eugénio de Almeida created the Eugénio de Almeida Foundation in 1963, to which he donated all his assets and left the mission of promoting cultural, educational, social and spiritual development of the region of Évora. What allows Eugénio de Almeida Foundation to fulfil the humanitarian dream of its founder, either by carrying out projects and activities for the community, or through financial support to institutions and individuals, is mainly the production of wines and olive oils from the Adega Cartuxa [Cartuxa Winery] and Lagar Cartuxa [Cartuxa Olive Mill].
