The PCAFPD scholarship program is made possible by the generous donations of individuals and groups. It costs approximately $1,200 per year to send one of our scholars to college in the Philippines. That includes tuition, books, fees, and a living allowance. Every contribution helps to change the lives of our scholars and their families!
The Foundation is a registered non-profit organization and contributions are tax deductible. There are two ways to donate to the Foundation:
Make an on-line donation through “Network for Good”
Unless otherwise specified, all donations go into the general scholarship fund to cover tuition, fees, books, and living expenses of scholars. Contributors may elect to have their donations used for special projects, such as conducting a survey of graduate scholars. Donations may also be made in memory of a special person or to an established scholarship funds (see Special Scholarships). Special Scholarships are named in honor of contributions of $1,500. A list of contributors appears on the last page of each newsletter.
The Lakan / Lakambini Honor Roll of our Major Donors
Initiated during our 30th Anniversary in 2013, the Lakan / Lakambini Honor Roll gives special recognition to those supporters who have given $500 or more during the calendar year.
According to our Filipino VP Roland de Jesus, Lakan (m) originally referred to a rank in the pre-Hispanic Filipino nobility on the island of Luzon, which means “paramount ruler.” Today, the term is still occasionally used to mean “nobleman,” but has mostly been adapted to other uses. In Filipino Martial Arts, Lakan denotes an equivalent to the black belt rank. Also, beauty contests in the Philippines have taken to referring to the winner as “Lakambini,” the female equivalent of Lakan. So, to all you noble and beautiful major contributors to PCAFPD, we thank you profusely and honor your commitment.
