What we do

Origin

The Professor Uría Foundation was established in November 2005 in memory of Professor Rodrigo Uría González, founder of Uría Menéndez.

It was created to promote volunteering within Uría Menéndez and humanitarian projects to benefit the most vulnerable segments of society.

It is registered with the Registry of Foundations of the Spanish Ministry of Culture and is overseen by the Ministry’s Supervisory Board.
