Francesc Moragas was a pioneer, humanist and also a man of action. With absolute dedication and a lot of discretion, he created one of the country's leading financial institutions: Caja de Pensiones para la Vejez y de Ahorros.
Thanks to this new organisation, Moragas was able to set up ”la Caixa” Foundation, a great welfare project that was aimed at eradicating illnesses and providing workers with a decent retirement, as well as promoting culture, education and research. All to ensure a better future for the working classes and those most in need.
The values that inspired his life and work have survived to this day and still epitomise ”la Caixa”. "Work in your head, people in your heart" was one of Francesc Moragas's maxims.
