Megaworld stands by on the principle that a corporation exists to serve others. We believe that we must not only do well but also do good in the community we are part of. This belief has been our driving force to continuously give back to the society through the company’s socio-civic arm, the Megaworld Foundation.
On 2012 our foundation has reached its 15th year anniversary. As a young foundation, we take pride in our humble accomplishments and contributions in the fields of education, health, environment, people empowerment and other noble undertakings. With our corporate social responsibility efforts we were awarded Best CSR in the 3rd Asian Excellence Awards Special of Corporate Governance Asia.

Since the beginning, the Foundation has been actively promoting education through its scholarship program. From two initial partner schools in 1999 —University of the Philippines and Mapua Institute of Technology —the Foundation now extends a helping hand to 25 partner universities and colleges.
With an average of 100 college scholars in its early years, the Foundation is currently supporting more than 400 students a year. These students show academic excellence in the fields of business, engineering, accountancy, information technology, architecture, communication arts, interior design, social sciences, hotel and restaurant management and tourism.
This year the foundation has added high school scholarships both for public and private high schools. Aside from full scholarship grants, these students receive stipend and allowances.
