Since 2009, the Bayanihan Foundation Worldwide has been working to help promote the quality of life in the Philippines and contributing to positive social change. We are dedicated to building strategic and thoughtful partnerships with like-minded organizations in the United States and at home; building broad and diaspora giving; and expanding awareness of the rich culture and history of the Philippine Islands.
The Foundation’s Board established clear priorities for its work in order to focus its activities and deliver more effectively.
