Last April 11, 2014, our Santuario De San Antonio Parish Foundation participated in the Association of Foundations Philippines, Inc. conference held at the Asian Institute of Management in Makati City. The event was represented by PPC President J.N. Blanco. The conference was well attended by over one hundred participants from different foundations including: Ayala Foundation, Inc., Coca-Cola Foundation Phils. Inc., SM Foundation, Inc., and Roxas Foundation, Inc.
The Association of Foundations, Inc. (AF) was established in November 1972. AF is the country’s first network of non-government organizations (NGOs). Its mission is to enable its member foundations to develop sustainable programs that serve their communities. Through the years, AF has become a bridge to grant opportunities, capacity builder, data bank, consultant, and an advocate of key issues. It is committed to the constant growth and professionalism of its member foundations in their efforts to improve the quality of human life.
Guest Speakers at the conference were Usec. Yasmin Busran-Lao and Former Sec. Senen Bacani and members of the Philippine Government Peace Panel on the Bangsamo. His Eminence Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle, Archbishop of Manila discussed unity and post modernity. Our beloved Cardinal was himself a beneficiary of the Roxas Foundation back when he was still a seminarian.
With your continued support and donations, the SSAP Foundation is able to assist programs of the JPIC scholars and seminarians, medical assistance at PGH, programs at the Makati City Jail, Friendship Home, and Calamity ministry among others.
