The Foundation’s Board of Trustees approved their appointments at this afternoon’s meeting, which was held in Madrid and chaired by the Prince and the Princess of Asturias and of Girona.  With the arrival of Mònica Margarit and Salvador Maneu, the Foundation takes an ambitious step forward in its quest to become a leading organization in promoting the progress and talent of youth and its action in the social field. Indeed, it seeks to become a global platform, building an attractive environment in which the young people of today can develop their talent.

The Prince of Girona Foundation

The Foundation’s mission is to support the training and development of young people in order to strengthen the new generations’ capacity to build a better and more solidary society, on the one hand, and to attend to the social problems in our area, on the other, seeking ways to assist and promote the most vulnerable and least prosperous collectives, with special attention to youth.

To carry out this mission, the Foundation works in four spheres: science and academics, culture and sport, social affairs and cooperation, and business.
