Spanish Association of Foundations (Asociación española de fundaciones)
The mission of the Spanish Association of Foundations (AEF) is to work for the benefit of the whole foundational sector in favour of its development and strengthening.
It has 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.
In 2020 the Association of Spanish Foundation started a Community Foundation support program that builds on different models of Community Foundations and shows the flexibility of the concept in order to adapt it to diverse contexts.
