CNIO Friends is a new modality of philanthropic support to the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre, intended for individuals or entities (associations, foundations, businesses or corporations) that believe in the cause to support cancer research.

Membership to CNIO Friends provides, besides the satisfaction of contributing to a project of excellence in an area of special interest, and the fiscal advantages according to the law, “membership recognition” and our gratitude, as specified in the categories listed below.

Thanks to the donations from our 'CNIO Friends', the CNIO recently launched the Postdoctoral Contract 'CNIO Friends' Programme, through which we will be able to recruit new talent to the CNIO. Recipients will be selected by an evaluation committee based on their academic excellence and will join their respective groups in the summer of 2016.

The Communications Office is available to assist with any enquiries regarding this matter. Phone: 91 732 80 00

All the contributions to the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre Foundation benefit from tax relief, as defined by the Spanish Law 49/2002 on the "Régimen fiscal de las entidades sin fines lucrativos y de los incentivos fiscales al mecenazgo".

According to a press release from the Treasury Ministry (August 1st, 2014), the recent tax reform includes several measures to foster the sponsoring activities. The deduction applicable to the IRPF due to donations, is raised from 25% to 30%. To promote the stability in the allocation of these resources, this percentage is raised to 35% if the contribution is maintained for three years.

To expand the social participation in these activities, the deduction is set up in two tiers, being 75% for donations lower than 150€. Any amount exceeding this limit will benefit from the above mentioned deduction rates.
