On this page you will find a number of services aimed at Foundations as well as at obtaining and maintaining the Public Utility status. 

  • Foundations are non-profit legal persons, endowed with sufficient assets and irrevocably allocated to the pursuit of an aim of social interest.
  • The declaration, or status, of Public Utility is attributed to non-profit legal persons - associations, private foundations that have not automatically acquired the status of public utility and, furthermore, certain cooperatives - that pursue aims of general interest in cooperation with the central or local Administration in terms of deserving such distinction from the Administration.
