The foundation Casa de Jorge Amado is a non-governmental, nonprofit organization with the mission to preserve the archives of Jorge Amado; promote and support studies about the author and about Bahian art and literature; create a forum for discussion about Bahian culture, in particular about the struggle to overcome racial and socioeconomic discrimination.

The Casa aims to keep the memory of Jorge Amado alive. Since it was inaugurated, the Casa de Jorge Amado has housed a permanent exhibition of documents, photographs, books, adaptations, and personal objects. On display as well are the prizes Jorge Amado won and photographs Zélia Gattai took, documenting the life of the author.
