About Us

We’re a passionate group of people working in service of the Filipino people

For 30+ years, ABS-CBN Foundation, Inc. (AFI) has been a committed public service advocate in strategic sectors of the Philippine society, with the goal of empowering communities. We do this through our major advocacies: Disaster Management (Sagip Kapamilya), Child Rights and Development (Bantay Bata 163), Education (Programa Genio), Environment (Bantay Kalikasan), and Livelihood and Social Entrepreneurship (Integrated Area Development).

AFI aims to awaken hope in the Filipino people by championing these advocacies via multi-sectoral partnerships in the spirit of “Bayanihan” – a Filipino word denoting the spirit of communal unity. In line with this, we ensure that the projects we deliver support the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Our mission

Make a Difference

Together it can be done ... one community at a time

We live to serve and make a significant impact in the areas of child care, disaster management, environment conservation, education and community development. The power of media helps us reach partners in target sectors that will become individual champions to give kapamilyas a bright future.

AFI serves as the public service arm of The Filipino Channel (TFC) and the umbrella department of all corporate social responsibility activities of one of Asia’s biggest media conglomerate. AFI is a committed advocate of public service and accomplishes its mission through supporting the programs of ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc. (ALKFI) in the Philippines.

Using the power and reach of media that stimulates creation of critical multi-sectoral partnerships, AFI will continue to rally Filipinos and like-minded individuals to support and fund child care, disaster management, and environment conservation. AFI strongly believes that the three core programs will help realize a bright future for our Kapamilyas that will become the hope for tomorrow.

Our values

Our core values are beacons that guide us in public service. Hope and a well-deserved future are the two reminders of the things that matter to our kapamilyas in need.

Compassion
No one gets left behind. We are then a caring force of calm that alleviates suffering everywhere we may find it. We will be there when people need the presence of others, to help whether to rescue a child, to bring relief during calamities, and or to protect the environment.
Integrity
We commit to serve with unwavering respect and honesty, striving to maintain our character and observing the values which are expected from us by those whom we have the privilege of serving.
Excellence
We strongly apply focus, discipline, and rigor in anything we set out to do. We conduct ourselves to the highest standards and expect the same from our partners.
Accountability
Transparency is a commitment to the people we are serving to assure the full success of our actions in the service of the poor and less privileged.
Service Orientation
Trust is the main foundation of all successful partnerships. We do not turn away anyone coming to us who is genuinely in need. We serve with joy and treat our donors, supporters, partners, our people and those we help - as our Kapamilya.
Empowerment
Driven by the vision of a better life for the Filipino, we support individuals and communities by creating opportunities for sustainable growth and transformation.
