Work, create, donate.
Our guiding values.


Founded in 1983 as a Opera Sociale by Michele Ferrero, who named the foundation after his parents and uncle, founders of the confectionary industry, the Foundation has always been presided by Mrs. Maria Franca Ferrero.
By offering a variety of activities, the Foundation helps the elderly to live the ageing process as an occasion to discover new opportunities and valorise the social capital of the individual.
The Foundation is housed in a complex where it is able to meet the needs of around 3,500 retired employees and their spouses, providing a meeting place, workshops, a library, a multi-purpose auditorium, gyms, exhibition halls and spaces for medical and clinical conferences. There is also a state-of-the-art nursery for employees' children.
