FUNDACIÓN REAL BETIS BALOMPIÉ
Fundación Real Betis believe that football can be used as a tool to promote educational values, to contribute to the fight against marginalisation and social exclusion, as well as to promote healthy life habits among children and young people.
Every year, Fundación Real Betis supports more than 300 organisations that work in the social or environmental sector, mainly in Seville and Andalusia. Each Season, the Foundation addresses a long list of initiatives to continue their work to improve social, economic and environmental factors within the community, being aware that social responsibility is increasingly important in any type of organisation, but much more so in a club like Real Betis Balompié, where the value of feelings and emotions are always present.
The foundation follows the guidelines established by the historical and philosophical values and the universal social dimensions of Real Betis Balompié. To achieve this, Fundación Real Betis Balompié developed different programmes and activities to give back to society, in the way that the Betis fans give to the club every day.
