Ateneo Alumni Homecoming 2023 and Christmas Bazaar
Call for Bazaar Merchants
We help nurture the brilliant futures of our youth by creating shared learning and social development programs and providing access to quality education through funding scholarship programs.
As a response to the call to live a life of service to others, the Lipad Foundation was formed by an entire batch of Ateneo de Manila High School graduates who wish to exemplify the spirit of generosity in their own circles of life.
By creating avenues to raise scholarship funds, from events to community collaborations, the Lipad Foundation aims to contribute to the development of our societies by providing access to quality education to deserving students. With the help of donors, volunteers and of course, members of the AHS 98 Alumni Association, we hope make this mission possible.
Our foundation will also provide for the retirement of teachers, mentors, most of whom have shaped us to become who we are today. Through this, we not only build a culture of generosity amongst our community, but also of utmost gratitude.
The Lipad Foundation accepts not just monetary, but more importantly, voluntary support, by sharing our resources and skills, to make our fundraising efforts meaningful, memorable and more powerful.
We are the Lipad Foundation, answering the call to help nurture the brilliant futures of our youth by empowering scholarship programs.
