Equitable Foundation, Inc. and San Beda College Alabang Forge Partnership to Provide Quality Education to Underprivileged Students


Equitable Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization and a member of the Equicom Group of Companies, recently inked a partnership with San Beda College Alabang (SBCA) to provide quality education for underprivileged high school graduates for the 2013-2014 School Year.

The foundation was established in honor of Go Kim Pah, who founded Equitable Bank in 1950, to engage in philanthropic, humanitarian, and charitable causes. Consistent with its thrust, the foundation will provide grants through the Go Kim Pah Scholarship Program in the fields of Accountancy and Information Technology.

“The Equitable Foundation is proud to work with SBCA, one of the leaders in Accounting and I.T. education, as its partner in enabling a brighter future for underprivileged but deserving students,” said Equicom Group Vice Chair, Rene J. Buenaventura.
