Going for Gold!

P1.1 Million raised

Happy New Year! Thank you to everyone who has helped the Springboard Foundation to reach its goal of breaking the P1 Million barrier by Christmas Day, 2005. Through your kind donations we are now able to support sick children, cancer sufferers in the Philippines as well as finance the renovation of the neonatal intensive care unit at Fabella Maternity Hospital and the purchase of all equipment for two bakeries in Baseco and Payatas.

Total amount raised as of December 2005:

1,022,730.00 PHP

Philippines Pesos

= 19,488.00 USD

United States Dollars

Whilst the bulk of the donations came from Philippine based individuals and organizations, donations of all kinds have also been greatly received from the UK, Germany, Holland, USA, Thailand, Hong Kong, Australia and Canada. From sponsored runs, donations in kind, Christmas concert collections, auctions, employee challenges to simple heartfelt cash donations, the overall response to our “Going For Gold” fund drive has been truly remarkable!

Together we will now make a difference for these indigent families in Philippine Government Hospitals.

Please visit our website regularly for updates on where the money will be spent.

Maligayang Pasko!
