When BDO Unibank and PCI Bank merged in 2007, BDO Unibank took over the PCI Bank Foundation and introduced its own programs. The name of the foundation was changed to BDO Foundation in 2008. It has since served “as the corporate social responsibility arm of BDO Unibank”. “It also serves as the channel for BDO’s outreach and giving back initiatives”. “It develops and implements programs to address the needs of the underserved and contribute to addressing social problems”.
The Foundation is accredited by the DSWD, BIR and PCNC and is a member of the Association of Foundations and League of Corporate Foundations, Inc. It has received awards of recognition for its work. The recognitions and accreditations paved the way for “greater collaboration” and more effective programs with other NGOs, donors and government agencies.
BDO Foundation classifies its initiatives into two (2) program pillars: disaster response, rehabilitation and rebuilding; and financial inclusion.
