I Benevolence Program

The Lisbon Project is a non-profit association that accepts donations from a variety of donors with

the aim of meeting the material needs of our community. Donations are a responsibility of the

Benevolence Program, which runs four different activities to ensure that the donations that we

receive reach our community members. These activities include three main distribution events: a

Mini Pop-Up Store held once or twice a month, a Monthly Saturday Pop-Up Store, and donation

campaigns focusing on specific needs. Additionally, there is one activity dedicated to fulfilling

individual requests for items - Specific Item Requests.


II Description of each activity

  • Saturday Monthly Pop-Up Store: A big-size Pop-Up store that displays all the donated items that reach the Lisbon Project and that takes place on the last Saturday of each month.

  • Mini Pop-Up Stores: A small-scale version of our Pop-Up store unfolds on select Fridays during "Family Friday" displays a selection of donations that reach the Lisbon Project.

  • Donation Campaigns: Focusing on Specific Needs: such as school supplies, baby items, or women's essentials.

  • Specific items request- An initiative that seeks to provide our community members with specific items they have requested as they become available for donation.


III Conditions for donation

  1. All donations must go through the Benevolence Program Manager. Contact +351 924 789 971 or to arrange a drop-off.

  2. All donations are stored in the Social Store or, in the case of big items, at another address waiting to be collected.

  3. The Lisbon Project may deny donations if:

a. they do not match the community members’ needs at that moment,

b. there is not enough storage space in the Social Store, or

c. the donated items are not in accordance with our donation policy.


IV Donated goods

  1. We accept any donated item that contributes to our community members' well-being, safety, and protection.

  2. We do not accept items in bad condition (e.g., with stains, broken, incomplete pieces, not working properly, or dangerous to use).

  3. We do not accept clothes that are soiled, extremely old, or significantly torn.

  4. We do not accept any type of underwear (e.g., bras, socks, boxers, etc), except if they have tags on.

  5. We do not accept swimwear, except if they have tags on.

  6. We do not accept food donations.

  7. We do not accept hygiene products.


Our community is constantly in need of larger household items, and we welcome any opportunity

to receive such donations with open arms. However, the Lisbon Project currently does not have the

facilities to store or the means to transport big items from the donor’s location to our community

members' homes. In light of this, we kindly ask our donors if they could arrange for the drop-off of

these items directly at the homes of the interested parties, or to hold onto the item at a designated

location until the recipient can organize transportation. This cooperation is invaluable in ensuring

that your generous donations effectively reach those in need within our community. Thank you for

your understanding and support.
