We are launching a new magazine, la fundación, for an audience interested in culture and the challenges of our society.
The emotional reward
Giving back what we receive when we help someone, sharing the emotions that this implies; from this has come a song that expresses our gratitude for the emotional reward, that indescribable sensation of happiness we feel when we manage to improve the life of someone who is suffering or who needs us.
The power of the mind in the aging process
Luis Rojas Marcos, a professor of psychiatry and member of the New York Academy of Medicine, inaugurated the 2022 Academic Seminar on Economics and Longevity held at Fundación MAPFRE with a lecture on the power of the mind in the aging process and the ingredients that can enhance it.
Our solidarity with Ukraine has not stopped
Since the outbreak of war in Ukraine, millions of people have been forced to leave their homes in search of a safer place. At Fundación MAPFRE we are striving to create an extensive network of solidarity that offers them support and reminds them that they are not alone.
Do you know how much caffeine is in your coffee?
Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant, which is why many people consume it to relieve fatigue and increase alertness. But not all coffees have the same effect, as the amount of caffeine is not the same in all of them. Fundación MAPFRE would like to remind you that if you want to beat tiredness, the best recipe is rest, especially if you are going to drive; and we recommend that you consume coffee for the sole purpose of delighting your senses and giving your day a spark of flavor, enjoying this pleasant experience.
Earth Hour has arrived
Nature is vital for humanity and preserving it means taking care of ourselves, too. That is why Fundación MAPFRE is once again taking part in Earth Hour, a worldwide initiative to raise awareness of the need to safeguard our planet. Would you like to join us too?
71,597 steps in women’s leadership
The main task of an organisation with such a strong social commitment as Fundación MAPFRE is to reduce all kinds of shortcomings and promote second chances aimed at protecting the most vulnerable.
Women: real and empowered
At Fundación MAPFRE we believe that gender equality is more than a goal in itself, it is an attitude. That is why, on International Women’s Day, we are giving a voice to three real and empowered women from our team who every day strive to make the world a better place.
For the future
Today is a day to remember the progress that has been made in reducing inequalities between men and women. Today is International Women’s Day and I would like to add my voice to those of other women. We all have a lot to say.
A room of one’s own
The cultural sector is eminently female, or at least mine is, which is the one I can best tell you about, our team in Fundación MAPFRE’s Culture area.
Health travels by boat
For many of the people living in the heart of the Amazon rainforest – the world’s largest – it is impossible to get an antigen test, an essential tool in the fight against COVID-19. This first Scientific Mission managed to conduct more than one thousand tests between August 3 and 25.
More antigen tests in September
Despite being a vacation month, the testing facility at the Wizink Center carried out more than 19,000 antigen tests on the people of Madrid in August. The success of this initiative has encouraged us to extend the service through to September 30.
Antigen tests to stop the spread of the pandemic
If you’d like to take a free test to help identify the virus at an early stage, come along to our free testing center. We’ll be at the Wizink Center in Madrid until August 31.
Start up your own Community Foundation
If you’ve got an idea for improving the lives of people in your community, or if you think you can find a solution to local problems, you now have a great opportunity to start up a Community Foundation that promotes initiatives of common interest.

How much information is generated and stored in the world?
If Internet usage figures were already monumental, with the pandemic they have increased even more. The more than 4.5 billion people in the world who have access to the Internet are constantly generating information. Considering the increase in content creation, we need reliable sources to turn to in order to obtain quality data, such as the data offered by our Documentation Center.
