President's Message


Welcome to the AmCham Foundation website!


Please allow us to show you a glimpse of the many worthwhile activities which the Foundation has been doing for many years for underprivileged youth and disaster victims in the Philippines. Also, be familiar with the various corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities of the members of the American Chamber of Commerce.


The American Chamber Foundation Philippines, Inc. (ACFPI) has been around for almost 20 years. We are the socio-civic arm of the American Chamber of Commerce and we are committed to promote goodwill of U.S businesses in the Philippines. We are doing this through promotion of CSR activities and practices of US firms and providing them opportunities and technical assistance in their social development programs. Many of the members of the AmCham Phils are partners of the AmCham Foundation in its youth development and disaster management programs. Did you know that around 150 orphans and street children in Manila Boystown are now learning how to use computers? That 150 former street children and urban poor students are receiving educational support and subsistence allowance until they finish college as well as job placement assistance. That the AmCham Foundation established a one- stop resource center called the Leonard Benjamin Development Center where its scholars and their families avail of medical, dental, reproductive health and other psycho social support.


Also, do not be surprised to know that the U.S. businesses contribute a lot not only the economic development of the Philippines but as well as in improving the quality of lives of majority of the Filipino people through their various CSR projects.


We would welcome your show of interest by logging on and getting involved as a volunteer, donor or corporate partner.
