Corporate social responsibility

Facio&Cañas has put it into practice since its foundation in 1942

Corporate social responsibility

Since 1942, our funding partners were citizens actively involved in the social, cultural, educational, and political environments.

Its founding partners distinguished themselves as citizens committed to the social, educational and political development of the country by contributing their knowledge and work. This commitment of service to Costa Rica has been maintained generationally among the partners, associates and collaborators of Facio&Cañas as an inherent value.

In 2016, the firm decided to create the Facio&Cañas Foundation, whose main objective is to support non-profit social causes in the country through pro bono advice. On the other hand, being part of LexMundo Pro bono Foundation allows us to participate in advisory projects and voluntary legal services to entrepreneurs worldwide.
