Spanish Association of Foundations
The Spanish Association of Foundations (AEF) is a private and independent association of national scope. It brings together nearly 800 Spanish foundations of the most diverse dimensions, purposes and areas of action. It is the most representative entity of the sector at national level. AEF was established on 22 January 2003 as a result of the merger of the Foundations Center and the Spanish Confederation of Foundations. It carries out the work and experience of more than 30 years of the two previous associations.
AEF’s mission is to work for the benefit of the whole foundational sector in favor of its development and strengthening.
Three main purposes:
Represent and defend the interests of Spanish foundations; Strengthen and articulate the sector; Improve the professionalization and management of foundations, contributing to their transparency and good governance.
