Multinational Foundation, Inc. (MFI) is a non-stock, non-profit organization, duly organized under Philippine laws and was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 15, 1974. On February 25, 1975, it was certified by the Bureau of Internal Revenue as a Social Welfare Organization and, therefore, a qualified donee or legatee and a tax-exempt organization. Its qualified donee status continuous to be effective.

MFI believes that one of the biggest causes of poverty in the country is the lack of access to education and training. The potentials of our growing population to be productive members of society has been hamstrung by their limited education and absence of relevant employable skills. With its belief that the answer to pervasive poverty is education, MFI has focused and devoted its efforts and resources in providing education and training to the underprivileged members of our society through its own programs as well as those undertaken with selected project partners.

MFI is currently involved in five major programs.

Home Education and Livelihood (HEAL) Program
MFI launched its Home Education and Livelihood (HEAL) Program in 2015 to provide quality education up to senior high school to underprivileged, out of school youth and adult learners. The program allows learning at home using Department of Education approved modules. Tutors are provided to the learners for mentoring in HEAL Centers. MFI believes that a senior high school education and diploma significantly increases the chance of heretofore out of school youth to either get relevant technical training, proceed to college or be gainfully employed.

Project Partners:

Seibo College Foundation
Rotary Club of Makati, Inc.
Our Lady of Peace Parish
City Government of Parañaque

Education for the Differently abled
There are many differently abled – blind, deaf, mute and lame – as well as indigenous peoples – who are unproductive because of lack of access to education or training tailored to their limitations. MFI supports the education and training of these segments of the population to enable them to be fully integrated as productive members of society.

Project Partners:

Sergia Esguerra Memorial Foundation, Inc. for Philippine Institute for the Deaf (SEMFI-PID)
Tahanang Walang Hagdanan, Inc. (TWH)
Resources for the Blind, Inc. (RBI)
Pangantucan Community High School, Inc. – Bukidnon Jesuit Mission for the Indigenous People

Support for Priestly Vocation
MFI believes that members of communities that are spiritually nourished stand a chance of having better quality of life than otherwise. Priests play an essential role in nourishing communities spiritually, unfortunately, there is a dearth of priests because of the inability of many who have the vocation and calling to afford the cost of education in seminaries. MFI provides financial support to selected religious and diocesan seminarians.

Project Partners:

The Camillian Fathers, Inc.
The Major Superior of the Rogationist Fathers, Inc.
San Carlos Seminary

Scholarships in Education and Sciences
The Philippines has consistently ranked lower than most participating countries in international assessments for Math and Science. We have also failed to produce enough good quality graduates in non–liberal arts courses at this age when much of a country's growth is anchored on technology. MFI provides scholarships to selected college students particularly in the science, technology, technical training, education, engineering, and mathematics (STTEEM).

Project Partners:

Don Bosco Training Center San Jose City, Inc.
PHINMA Foundation, Inc. and PHINMA Education Holdings, Inc.
University of the Philippines – College of Medicine and UP Medical Alumni Foundation, Inc.

Recognition of Women in Rural Education
The Filipina Achievers in Rural Education Award (FLORA) recognizes outstanding women in rural education. It is a reality that a big percentage of schools in rural areas generally lag behind in the quality of education compared to what is made available in the urban centers, be they run by the government or private sector. It must also be noted that in many areas, women are disadvantaged because of bias or stereotyping. By recognizing women who make their mark in rural education, MFI trains the spotlight on two sectors that need uplifting: rural education and women.

The Filipina Achievers in Rural Education Award is a project of MFI in partnership with TOWNS Foundation, Inc.

Support to Philippine Agri-Business and Countryside Development
MFI is a special partner institution of the Management Association of the Philippines Agri-Business and Countryside Development Foundation (MAP ABCDF) and supports the latter in the form of full secondment of one of its officers to assist MAP ABCDF's Secretariat by inviting quality speakers to present innovation technology, industry trends and burning issues. MAP ABCDF holds weekly forum meetings for promoting agribusiness and countryside development through online zoom, YouTube channel, and networking opportunities. The said forums via online zoom are made available also for free to farmers, fishers, students, and teachers. Past sessions are made available also for free to the public through its YouTube channel.
