The main objectives of the Spanish Association of Foundations are the following:
a. To represent and defend the interests of the associates and of the foundation sector as an outstanding part of Civil Society. AEF is the spokesperson and a representative of the sector defending its interests at every moment, but especially whenever any legal or fiscal laws are being drafted.
b. Improve the management and the professionalization of foundations, promoting their transparency and good governance.
c. Articulate and strengthen the foundation sector, promoting contact and collaboration among foundations. AEF serves as a networker of Spanish foundations, offering meeting points and activities where they may share experiences or design projects which demand a critical mass.
