The North Negros Community Development Foundation, Inc. (NNCDFI) was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as a non-stock, non-profit corporation on October 15, 1985 at a time when the sugar industry in Negros was economically in distress. It is a corporate social responsibility of Lopez Sugar Corporation. Its original purpose was to provide an alternate income generation for hundreds of workers being laid off from the sugar centrals and sugar farms. Among the foundation’s programs were skills training, community organizing and basic education. Currently, the foundation’s programs focused on managing a school (Holy Family School established in 1988) offering Kinder to Grade 10. Its main office is located at Central Lopez, Brgy. Paraiso, Sagay City, Negros Occidental. The foundation has 3 regular staff, 1 part-time staff, 16 faculty members including a school principal, and 11members of the Board of Trustees.
It was first certified for 3 years on February 3, 2004 and which ended on February 2, 2007. First renewal was for 5 years on June 17, 2009 and which ended on June 16, 2014. Second Renewal was certified for 3 years on April 1, 2015 and which ended on June 1, 2017.
Its purposes, among others, are “to improve the socio-economic life of the marginalized poor in North Negros for the total development of the human being; strive to be efficient in the use of scarce resources while constantly improving the quality of their services; to expand the services to the whole province of Negros Occidental; and to provide quality relevant education with emphasis on academic proficiency, character development and Christian family values to produce quality graduates”. The Foundation is now focusing only in the operation of a Private school – Kinder to Grade 10 (Holy Family School established in 1988 recognized by DepEd – formerly a “complete La Salle standard school”). However, due to lack of funding, the foundation did not renew its application with La Salle.
