In 2002, Athletic Club created the Athletic Club Foundation with the idea of it being an instrument to link the club with Biscayne Society. Aware that the true power of Athletic Club is its people, the Foundation aimed to be the instrument to help make society a better place. In order to achieve this objective, the Foundation launches an important programme of activities and actions every season, both individually and through collaboration with different agents and social organisations.
In its work, the Foundation uses the football, values and social, historical and cultural dimension of Athletic Club as tools through which to try to help improve the quality of life of the people at whom they are directed. Likewise, all of the Foundation’s activities are nurtured by the organisation’s talent, with the involvement of the coaches and the men’s and women’s players being on a voluntary basis.
