Linking up with our organisation is a great act of social responsibility: it means joining the struggle for life.
It means forming an alliance with, and sharing the values of, the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Foundation, it is an act of life-giving solidarity, and one that is guided by scientific rigour, care for patients, trust and transparency.
The tenor Josep Carreras established the Foundation that bears his name in 1988 with the aim of investing all the resources he could muster to find a definitive cure for leukaemia.
Our 30 years of experience and our international track record vouch for us with independent centres in Spain, the United States, Germany and Switzerland, all presided by Josep Carreras and coordinated by an International Scientific Committee. + info
Our commitment to patients is one of our reasons for existence. We provide patient care services and have a network of reception apartments to help improve the quality of life for patients and their families. + info
Science and the future
Our efforts are based on financing scientific research projects to improve leukaemia patients' future and to find a cure for them. We have established and launched the first research centre in Europe exclusively devoted to research into leukaemia and other malignant blood diseases, the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute. + info
Independence and transparency
Our funding is entirely from private sources such as contributions from our partners; donations from both individuals and companies; inheritances and legacies; financial income and, most especially, the fund-raising concerts and recitals given by our President, the tenor Josep Carreras. + info
