LOPEZ GROUP FOUNDATION, INC.
For more than a century, the Lopez family has practiced the concept of private business reaching out to their communities and the nation, not only in times of calamities, but as customary behavior. It is a behavior they have accepted as the norm.
The CSR initiatives of the Lopez Group are aligned with the United Nation's Millennium Development Goals (or MDGs) in poverty alleviation, education, environment, and health. The Lopez Group is also a champion in advocacy through its worldwide media outlets.
The Lopez Group Foundation, Inc. (LGFI) was established in 2005 to coordinate and collate information, as well as to facilitate cooperation among different, but similarly aligned projects relating to corporate social responsibility (CSR) of the nine member foundations: ABS-CBN Foundation, ABS-CBN Bayan Foundation, Don Senen Gabaldon Foundation, Eugenio Lopez Foundation, First Philippine Conservation, Knowledge Channel Foundation and Meralco Millennium Foundation. Also members of LGFI are the major companies from the Lopez Group that have active employee volunteers regularly tapped for CSR programs.
