    The Philippine-American Fund is a $24 Million grant facility opened by the Philippines and managed by the Gerry Roxas Foundation, with SyCip Gorres Velayo & Co. as institutional partner. The project will be implemented from August 2013 to September 2018.

     

    ACTIVITIES

    The Phil-Am Fund awards sub-grants that support inclusive, sustainable growth by contributing to five broad categories: 1) enterprise development, 2) governance, 3) counter trafficking in persons, 4) education innovation challenge grants, and 5) biodiversity conservation.

    The Governance Grants strengthen the work of civil society organizations in promoting public sector accountability and transparency. Phil-Am Fund also encourages more responsible business behavior to promote corporate integrity.

    The Trafficking in Persons Grants support activities across the three pillars of USAID’s counter-trafficking strategy—prosecution, prevention, and victim protection.

    The Education Grants finance scalable and technology-based solutions that provide quality education to early grade learners in hard-to-reach areas. The funding also supports activities to improve adult literacy.

    The Biodiversity Grantssupport conservation and management of natural resources to improve environmental resilience.
