The Foundation ranks fifth in an evaluation of the leading Spanish foundations
The report "Construir Confianza 2016" (building trust), compiled by Fundación Compromiso y Transparencia, puts the Víctor Grífols i Lucas Foundation in fifth 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 following the inclusion of a section to evaluate the social, media and economic impact of its activities. 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.
