The Fundació Tutelar de l’Empordà – Guardianship Foundation of Emporda – is a non-profit private foundation that operates since 2002 with the aim to assist either persons mentally handiccaped or senior citizens from the Emporda regions, people who have been declared
incapacitated by a court.
Thus, the main goal of the Fundació Tutelar de l’Empordà is offering legal assistance to those in need of it, looking for their quality of life and social integration. These people must have been declared legally incapacitated and must not have relatives to take care of them (or incapacitated relatives).
Initially, the Fundació Tutelar de l’Empordà started helping mentally handiccaped people , but few years ago it also started to help and assist older people.
In short, the Foundation wants to guarantee the quality of life of all people under its guardianship, especifically:
a) Personal care, making everything possible to improve the quality of life of these people.
b) Defence and administration of the goods of the persons under guardianship, always looking
for their interest.
c) Legal representation of people under guardianship to any administrative process.

the greatest show in the world; but seeing another man willing to help the former is even
When today we see a company that uses part of its funds to economically help a Private
Foundation in social, cultural, sports and environmental projects, it may seem a kind of a
utopia, especially when the Administration itself seems to forget about all these needs, which
have to be met by non-profit private foundations like ours. Alchimia’s initiative seems, then, a
very nice investment.
We must also highlight the participation of all Alchimia’s staff, for the interest shown by these
people when we presented our project has been hard to find for us in other places. Double
congratulations to all of you.
We appreciate the care received and the generosity of its financial contribution, which allows
us to continue our mission of ensuring the rights, duties and protection of people under our
Thanks a lot!
