The Altadis Foundation is a non-profit organization, with its headquarters in Spain, which operates in countries where strong social needs exist, according to the Human Development Indices of the United Nations.

The Foundation was created in 1992 under the name of Fundación Tabacalera (registered with number 200, by Ministerial Order from 15th September).

After the creation of Altadis in 1999, the Foundation consolidated its activities in Spain and started to operate abroad.

However, 2009 marked an important step in the activities of the Foundation who went on to develop community investment and expanded its geographical presence to Latin America, Asia and Africa.
