Over the years, the commitment and vocation that has characterised ”la Caixa” Foundation since it began has been reflected both in its financial activities and also in its Obra Social or work in society.
For more than 110 years, ”la Caixa” Foundation has worked to contribute towards the progress of people, especially those most in need. That's why we particularly focus on programmes with the greatest power to transform society, such as those that fight against child poverty and social exclusion, that foster employment and help to improve the living conditions of the most vulnerable people.
”la Caixa” Foundation also focuses on other areas that are vital in promoting progress and equal opportunities, such as medical research, high quality training, culture and education.
Given the social commitment of ”la Caixa” Foundation to building a better society, the natural areas for it to carry out its work are Spain and Portugal.
