Rainha D. Leonor Fund

Created by Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa and União das Misericórdias Portuguesas, the Rainha Dona Leonor Fund (FRDL) was born from the conviction that good causes must go beyond the borders of the capital.


Since 2015, this fund has helped Portuguese Misericórdias in priority and innovative social causes, contributing to the country’s social and territorial cohesion.

It is also aimed at recovering the historical heritage of the Misericórdias, so often relegated to the background, given the urgency of social causes.

The Rainha D. Leonor Fund has already supported 143 Misericórdias, from north to south of the country, with a total amount of more than 23 million euros.
