Technology and connectivity at the service of society

The Foundation’s Purpose

The Cellnex Foundation has been conceived as a dynamic tool to promote Cellnex‘s social commitment and to provide differential value through actions aimed at people and based on technological connectivity solutions, aligned with the company’s business model.

The Foundation’s efforts target people in different circumstances: individuals disconnected from the digital world -specially youth-, and in situations of vulnerability, such as people with disabilities and people with low employability.

We work to remove social inequalities, encourage functional and gender diversity, reduce territorial imbalances, and promote entrepreneurship and talent development.

Our Mission

We bring technology closer to people to promote effective connectivity to help reduce the digital, social and territorial divide.



We tackle imbalances and consequent social inequalities 


We reduce, through connectivity, isolation and inequality in rural areas and complex urban environments


We address social, gender and functional diversity inequities by promoting connectivity solutions that improve people’s quality of life

Our social contribution model is based on four pillars:

Own programs

led by the Foundation. They constitute our main line of action

Joint programs

in collaboration with strategic agents
Corporate volunteering
involving employees and former collaborators
Specific collaborations
in projects from other organizations
Main Projects

Preparing the Future

Second edition of ‘Preparing the Future’, a summer camp focused on technology and computer language in which young people ages 9 to 12 learn to program, create robots, develop digital skills and bring their most creative ideas to life. The objective is to awaken in them interest in #STEM vocations, while they have fun and play sports in a natural environment like Puig-reig.
