Mission, Vision and Values

”la Caixa” has worked for more than 110 years contributing to the advancement of society and the progress of individuals, with a special emphasis on those who need it most at any given moment. The 2016-2019 Strategic Plan reflects how ”la Caixa” Banking Foundation will strive in the coming years to become even more effective in fulfilling our founding purpose, taking very much into account the following mission, vision and values:

Mission: To build a better, more just society, that offers greater opportunities to the people who most need them. 

Vision: To be a point of reference for society…

… in the development of lasting solutions that cover people’s basic needs and create equality of opportunity.
… when responding to new challenges in the field of research, through training and promoting excellence in research.
… in the dissemination of culture, science and education throughout all segments of the community.


  • Social commitment, understood as the commitment to build a better society. The beneficiaries of the Foundation’s energy, effort and capabilities are the people, above all the weakest, and those members of society who have fewer opportunities.
  • Responsibility, meaning the duty to ensure that the organization’s actions are undertaken according to criteria of excellence in management and effectiveness in results. To accomplish this, the programs must be assessed and their activities dynamically defined in order to maximise the achievement of their mission.
  • Confidence, resulting from social recognition of the Foundation’s activity and the impact of its programs. Quality must be the characteristic trait of all the organization’s actions and interventions.
