Filipino Community Center Partners with the Consuelo Foundation
The Filipino Community will contribute their donations to the Consuelo Foundation, who will match it, dollar for dollar, up to $2 million.
The Consuelo Foundation is currently responding to immediate recovery needs in the affected areas of the Visayas through their partners and affiliates. Their core long term strategy is to work to rebuild communities in ways that create safe and healthy environments for children and families. We are using donations to partner with trusted Philippine-based organizations to devise comprehensive approaches that include the restoration of housing, livelihoods, psychosocial and physical health, and the promotion of child and family welfare and safety.
“The Consuelo Foundation is deeply moved and saddened by the recent tragedy that has affected the lives of millions of Filipinos. Many of them are people we have worked with for decades,” said Jon Matsuoka, president and CEO of the Consuelo Foundation. “In response to this disaster we have pledged to match all monies donated to the FilCom Center up to $2 million. If, for example, you donate
$100 to FilCom, you are really donating $200 to Philippine disaster victims.”
