The Fundación Amancio Ortega is a non-profit institution that stems from the experience of its founder and his desire to contribute to a better society. The foundation designs and manages projects in line with the strategy set out by its board of trustees, chaired by its founder.
Its programmes share the goal of creating opportunities for its beneficiaries, working mainly in two key sectors so that people can lead a high-quality life: education and social welfare.
In the educational area, the foundation activates resources facilitated for project participants, helping them grow individually and enriching their environment. In the assistance area, the Fundación Amancio Ortega carries out both its own actions as well as collaborations with consolidated institutions in its continuous dedication to benefiting the most vulnerable people and groups.
In its activity, the Fundación Amancio Ortega assigns capital, work and knowledge resources to each of its lines of action. All its actions are preceded by a prior assessment that includes project identification, evaluation and selection. Its programmes are developed within a specific time frame, with defined goals and objectives, and their execution is accompanied by strict monitoring and control of results.
