César DePaço’s philanthropy is absolutely inspiring. The businessman has supported a wide range of humanitarian actions and social responsibility causes, in public, private, and community organizations.
These charitable activities are widely appreciated throughout the world, with a special focus on the two countries that the DePaço family can call home: the United States and Portugal.
The reasons for the philanthropic mission may vary, but they can all be summarized to César DePaço's own personal characteristics: a committed, compassionate, and caring man.
For this very reason, César DePaço and his family feel they have a mission to thank, support, and give back to society.
Many of César DePaço's humanitarian actions focus on supporting institutions that lost some of their essential response equipment, particularly in emergency situations.
In Portugal, many of these solidarity actions involve direct support to several professional and volunteer Firefighters.
When the devastating fire of Pedrógão Grande struck, César DePaço donated about 15 thousand Euros to the Voluntary Firefighters of Carnaxide, so that they could repair a tank truck that had been damaged during the fires. Years later, the same fire department would again receive new equipment from the hands of César DePaço.
Similarly, César DePaço has contributed to the restoration of a logistical support vehicle for the Alvaiázere Firefighters Association, with funding in the value of 15 thousand Euros. The philanthropist has also supported the Madalena Voluntary Firefighters, in the Azores, with donations for new equipment purchases and the recovery of old ones.
Over the years, César DePaço has also supported numerous institutions and causes that contribute to society.
As Consul, the entrepreneur is recognized for directly assisting hundreds of people, usually by speeding up the bureaucratic processes associated with residency or work permits in the United States.
During the pandemic, the Portuguese businessman donated about 60 tablets to the school group EB 2,3 D. Pedro IV - Mindelo, in Vila do Conde (Portuguese city) so that the students could continue learning remotely from home.
A year before, César DePaço had already supported Obra Social Madre Maria Clara, in Linda-a-Pastora (near Lisbon) with five thousand Euros, so that the Christmas of dozens of children in need could be a little happier.
Every year, César DePaço promotes a series of actions to support the security forces, both in Portugal and in the United States of America.
This support is usually shown through the funding of new equipment, but also through the creation of K9 units, and the respective donation of trained canines to integrate them.
In Portugal, the Portuguese National Republican Guard received from César DePaço two Belgian Malinois. In the USA, dozens of police teams have already received trained dogs, usually German Shepherds.
