The Princess of Girona foundation was established on June 26, 2009, by the Chamber of Commerce of Girona, Caixa Girona, the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation and “la Caixa” in the honour of Prince of Girona –  title held by the heir apparent of the Spanish Throne, the then Prince Felipe. After his proclamation as King, the title went to Princess Leonor, hence the foundation name changes to Princess of Girona Foundation.

The Princess of Girona Foundation aims to become a global platform and a benchmark for the promotion of progress and talent, through projects where the real protagonists are young people, whatever their age and scope (business, social, cultural, sports, academic or scientific). The Princess of Girona Foundation understands the support for young people as a way to enhance the capacity of the new generations in the construction of a better and more solidarity society, with special attention to young people from more disadvantaged backgrounds.

The activities of the Foundation are structured around four main lines: the promotion of entrepreneurial initiative, the school success of the youngest, the improvement of employability and the promotion of vocations, with a special interest in the detection of young people with talent that can become contemporary referents of other young people (FPdGi Awards), the launch of programs to improve employability (program “Rescuers of talent”) and educational innovation in the training of trainers (“Educate entrepreneurial talent” ). In 2017, the FPdGi will allocate 2.8 million euros to programs for the benefit of young people.

These awards are awarded in five categories: four individual awards to young people (between 16 and 35 years old) who undertake and start a work, a business, an endeavor, especially if they entail difficulty or risk, and with this they are capable of inducing creatively positive changes in society, and an entity that works in favor of young people, especially in the promotion of entrepreneurship, employability and employment, education and school success, vocation and talent.
