how we operate

The Association does not discriminate regarding economic capabilities, nor does it discriminate in any way regarding admitting members. Membership is personal and individual, and associates do not have the right to transfer their membership to any other person, for any reason.
The Association can hold fundraising activities, even in organised and continuative forms and through public solicitation or through the transfer or distribution of goods or services of modest value, utilising its own resources or those of third parties, including volunteers and employees – through donation requests to third parties, bequeathals and contributions of a compensatory nature – in order to finance general interest initiatives while respecting the principles of truth, transparency and appropriateness in its relationship with its supporters and the public.

Commercial activities are only permitted if they are conducted in a marginal or auxiliary manner and, in any case, provided that they are of a secondary nature with respect to the social scope of the Association.
