Our Statement of Commitment
PBSP was founded in December 1970 by 50 Filipino business leaders who pledged to set aside 1% of their companies’ net income before taxes to pursue poverty reduction programs. Based on the Venezuelan Dividendo Voluntario para la Comunidad model of corporate social action, PBSP was a means by which the Philippine business community could rationalize and coordinate its funding and technical support to socio-economic projects and programs across the country.
