The Bert Lozada Foundation, Inc. was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as a non-stock, non-profit organization on September 14, 2009 in honor of the legacy of Mr. Remberto (Bert) Casimiro Lozada. However, it stopped operations after incorporation since no one could take charge of the foundation at that time. In September 2016, the foundation was revived as a result of consultative meeting of the Board of Trustees, thus it was launched last September 14, 2016 during the 60th Founding Anniversary of the Bert Lozada Swim School.
