On Metrobank’s 58th Anniversary, the group turned over P30 million worth of grants to its social development partners during its annual giving – back tradition “Anniversary Grants Turnover Ceremony”.
Education Secretary Leonor Briones served as the guest of honor in the virtual event.
Previously, Metrobank donated P220 million to support and fun the national government’s efforts to fight the coronavirus pandemic.
Coursed through MBFI, Metrobank’s social arm, and the Ty family’s GT Foundation Inc. (GTFI), this year’s batch of beneficiary organizations received financial aid to implement their programs on health, education, arts, livelihood and nutrition.
One of the beneficiaries is the Yellow School of Hope in Sitio Lipata in Caramoan Island in Camarines Sur. The MBFI donated gadgets such as printers, copiers, and risograph machines to help teaches in reproduction of their modules and other learning materials. The renewal of the seven – year partnership with the foundation benefits more that 20,000 students from 29 geographically isolated schools nationwide.
Other developmental partners MBFI and GTFI will be assisting are the League of Corporate Foundations, International Care Ministries, Ronald McDonald’s House Charities of the Philippines, Dualtech Training Center, Don Bosco Technical Institute, Punlaan School, Manila Doctors Hospital, select Department of Education public schools and Filipino artists through the Metrobank Art & Design Excellence-Community Aid and Relief for Emergency Situations.
