FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEConsuelo Foundation: 25 years of giving hope
The Consuelo Foundation may well be one of the most genuine untold charity stories in the Philippines.
That’s because f 
or over 25 years, one foundation has been quietly helping those in need, particularlychildren, women and families in the Philippines
and Hawaii. Untold stories like Consuelo Foundation’
sare interesting in that it projects a true sense of wisdom. Both the story and its works have stood thetest of time; a testament to the purity of the vision and passion of one woman.It began in 1987 when wealthy heiress Dona Consuelo Zobel Alger had been approached by Child andFamily Service Philippines (CFSPI) head Patti Lyons for funding. Consuelo ev
entually became CFSPI’s
main benefactress, which later on opened a Consuelo Zobel Alger home, a residential center for streetchildren in Baguio City.It was here where Consuelo Zobel Alger found her inspiration. Having no children of her own, it was thechildren supported by her program that she cared for as her children. In 1988, she created her ownprivate foundation, the Consuelo Zobel Alger Foundation to improve the quality life of disadvantagedchildren, women and families in the Philippines and Hawaii.The foundation focused on supporting programs for the prevention, protection and recovery of abusevictims as well as programs that created opportunities for disadvantaged children, women and families.When Consuelo passed away in 1992, her endowment was given to the foundation where it wasinvested. This is where her legacy lives on. Today, the earnings from the investments are sustaining theConsuelo Zobel Alger Foundation. Since its inception, the foundation has given over 75 million dollars or3 billion pesos to help her cause.
Apart from illustrating Consuelo’s
passion to her cause, it shows off her financial sense. The foundationis a prime example of an organization that illustrates the impeccable use of financial savvy to create self-sustaining philanthropy.It is this quiet yet highly involved foundation that has quietly given throughout its 25 years devoid of corporate or political motives that illustrates a true sense of charity. A pure mission to give to those inneed may explain how it has continued to give for 25 year
s, even after Consuelo’s life. It’s a testament
that genuine and sincerity stand the test of time, a true legacy that can be passed on for generations.
