The Pere Tarrés Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees. Its principal functions are to ensure the fulfilment of the mission and aims established in the entity’s articles of association, while guaranteeing its sustainability. The Board of Trustees meets on a bimonthly basis to check in on the Foundation’s various programmes and to sanction and guide when it comes to important questions, such as budgets, annual closing of accounts, documents like the Philosophy, Ethical Code, and Strategic Institutional Plan or reflections made on future perspectives. Some Board members also provide support in the search for economic resources and institutional representation, guiding the direction or facilitating valuable relationships for the entity.
