Víctor Grífols i Lucas Foundation rated highly for transparency
05 March 2018
The Foundation ranks fourth in an evaluation of the leading Spanish foundations.
The report "Construir Confianza 2017" (building trust), compiled by Fundación Compromiso y Transparencia, puts the Víctor Grífols i Lucas Foundation in fourth place in its ranking of the most transparent organizations in the family foundation category. This report evaluates the transparency and governance of Spanish foundations, based on the information published on their websites.
The foundation's position has improved over the last year. However, it is not included in the top rankings because it does not publish an auditor's report, which this study deems essential, although none of the circumstances specified by the legislation in this area would require the foundation to produce audited accounts.
"Life Animated" at Centre Cívic Urgell
The Víctor Grífols i Lucas Foundation is partnering with the Barcelona Festival of North American Independent Cinema, "Americana Film Fest", to support the movie forum session with "Life Animated".
Roger Ross Williams' documentary, "Life Animated", tells the remarkable story of Owen Suskind, an autistic boy who was inseparably attached to Disney's animated characters. The film, inspired by Ron Suskind's book "Life Animated: A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes and Autism", tells the surprising coming-of-age story of Owen, and the power of movies and stories to connect to people. This session will promote consideration of ethical issues around autonomy and dependency.
The screening will be followed by a discussion, led by Mayca Sanz, psychologist and audiovisual producer, and Núria Terribas, Director of the Víctor Grífols i Lucas Foundation.
