The Kapampangan Development Foundation, Inc. (KDFI) was organized in 1986 by a group of Kapampangans who live outside of Pampanga whose aim was to share their talents, blessings and time for the less fortunate Cabalens in Pampanga and Region 3. It was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as a non-stock, non-profit corporation on January 9, 1987. KDFI aims to promote health, education and livelihood programs for Pampanga and the rest of Region 3. In 1991, when the Mt. Pinatubo erupted, the KDF trustees, officers and staff were automatically designated by then President Cory Aquino to take charge of the Mt. Pinatubo rehabilitation and mitigation programs using the KDF network. In 2007, after the resettlements of the Mt. Pinatubo victims were built and the agriculture project and industry related projects were revived and re-introduced, KDF own Programs in Health, Education and Livelihood were continued. They identified the most vulnerable of the indigent sector as its target beneficiaries, the disabled, the women and children. Its main office is located at Jesus A. Datu Medical Center, Barangay San Vicente, Bacolor, Pampanga. The foundation has 7 regular staff, 13 volunteers, and 10 members of the Board of Trustees.
It was first certified for 1 year on September 15, 2014 and which will end on August 7, 2015.
Its purposes, among others, are “to serve the less fortunate people of the Kapampangan Region through health, education and livelihood programs; to implement its health programs through charity clinic for People with Disability (PWD), maternal and child health nutrition; to promote sustainable health, education and livelihood programs through partnerships with the community based organizations in the Capampangan Region, as well as through the mobilization of resources within and outside of the region; and to strengthen the education and training programs for the youth; and to establish network of partners and volunteers that will support the implementation of the KDF’s programs, creating and sustaining a sustainable mechanism for delivering the services to the less fortunate “Cabalens”.
