Founded in 2010 by Antonio Banderas, Lágrimas y Favores was born driven by the Reales Cofradías Fusionadas de San Juan and its main mission is to help various social foundations and projects in Malaga: donating scholarships to university students through the University of Malaga; supporting cancer patients through the Cudeca Foundation and giving support to the most underprivileged through the Fundación Corinto, Cáritas Parroquial, Seminario Diocesano de Málaga, Corazones Malagueños, Hermanas de la Cruz and Victoria Foundation, among others.
Lágrimas y Favores Foundation Grants
Since the creation of the foundation in 2010 they have been collaborating with the University of Malaga, currently in their 6th consecutive year. They donate 75,000 euros a year to the University of Malaga for students who want to study abroad in universities in the United States and Canada.
Moreover, within the framework of the convention with the Caja Sol Foundation, they provide grants to students to enrol in specialised courses.
Antonio Banderas, the president of the Lágrimas y Favores Foundation, and Antonio Pulido, the president of the Cajasol Foundation, will renew a partnership agreement this year in which both foundations aid families in Malaga whose members are unemployed or who are cancer patients or university students without financial resources. They contribute:
20,000 euros throughout the course of the year to cover the costs of home care, medical day units and rehabilitation units, outpatient visits and inpatient units.
Contributions have increased
Contributions to low-income families have increased, which will be managed by Caritas Parroquial in Malaga, so that people who have dependent minors or seniors under their responsibility without any aid will benefit from the programme that began in 2015 in Andalusia by the Cajasol Foundation.
