¿Why a foundation?


The Real Madrid Foundation is the instrument by which Real Madrid is present in society and develops its social and cultural awareness programmes.


Its main objective is to promote, both in Spain as well as abroad, the values inherent in sport, and the latter’s role as an educational tool capable of contributing to the comprehensive development of the personality of those who practice it. In addition, as a means of social integration of those who find themselves suffering from any form of marginalisation, as well as to promote and disseminate all the cultural aspects linked to sport.


The Real Madrid Foundation exists thanks to the collaboration of the different public authorities, thanks to the generous support it receives from important national and international companies through patronage and sponsorship agreements and, in particular, thanks to the individual donations made by thousands of Madrid’s fans, who wish to express their support and strengthen their bond with Real Madrid.

The Foundation is audited annually and the results are presented to the Board of Trustees, to the Governing Authority for Foundations of the Ministry of Education and Sport, and are subsequently published in the club’s annual report and in the Foundation’s magazine.


The Foundation divides its activities into four main areas:

  • Sports activities

  • Educational and cultural activities

  • Social welfare activities

  • International cooperation

  • Institutional activities
