Inspired by the figure of its founder and the important role he played in the society of his time, the Fundación Ortega y Gasset was created in 1978 by Soledad Ortega Spottorno.  The Fundación Gregorio Marañón was created in 1988.

The Fundación José Ortega y Gasset has merged with the Fundación Gregorio Marañón producing a new Fundación Ortega-Marañón,  that integrates the most important cultural figures (in Philosophy and Medicine) in Spain during the 20th century.
