Three Grifols foundations

Since 1909, our core values and ethical standards have formed part of our DNA. We run three long-established foundations aimed at delivering a sustainable positive impact on individuals, local communities, the scientific community and society as a whole.

Víctor Grífols i Lucas Foundation

Established in 1998 to spark cross-disciplinary debate on Bioethics, the Foundation aims to foster ethical attitudes and create new ideas and insights among healthcare organizations, companies, and professionals.

In 2020, €6.3 million was donated for in-house programs such as the Global Laboratory Initiative and the Child Nutrition Program, as well as external NGOs including Spanish Red Cross, Save the Children, United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), and the World Food Programme.
