Foundation for the Promotion of the Social Sciences
Art. 2 of the Foundation's Statutes states that: "The aim of the Foundation is to create the financial bases for the support of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, whose creation was announced by His Holiness Pope John Paul II on 23 December 1991. The Academy will rely on funding from these reserves for the development of its activities".
From the Academy's Statutes: "The Academy receives financial support from a special 'Foundation for the Promotion of the Social Sciences', from contributions of the Holy See and from donations and gifts" (Art. 15).
"The Statutes of the Foundation and their possible modifications must be communicated to the Holy See. The Holy See appoints its own representative to the Foundation's Council, whose task is to communicate its opinion and decisions in accordance with Art. 7 of the Statutes of the Foundation" (Art. 16).
"The President in collaboration with the President of the special Foundation will draft an annual report of the financial resources available to the Academy for its activities" (Art. 19).
