Abstract

El presente trabajo trata de determinar el impacto que tienen en la actualidad las fundaciones en el desarrollo socio-económico de las Comunidades Autónomas de nuestro país. Para ello se ha utilizado como unidad de análisis al sector fundacional del Principado de Asturias. Son tres los principales logros derivados del trabajo desarrollado. Primero, se han establecido un conjunto de variables clave de clasificación del sector fundacional español. Segundo, se ha analizado el peso de este sector en el empleo según distintos estimadores. Tercero, se ha determinado la capacidad de las fundaciones de aportar riqueza a nuestras sociedades. This research work is aimed at evaluating the impact of foundations on Spanish social-economic development. We have employed foundations located in the Principality of Asturias as the focus of the study. Three main implications are derived from the results obtained. Firstly, we have identified a set of appropriate variables to classify Spanish foundations. Secondly, we have valuated the contribution of this sector in terms of the region’s rates of employment. Thirdly, we have determined the foundations’ contribution to the region’s PIB.
