GOKONGWeI BrOTHers FOUNDATION
Fund socioeconomic projects— with a strong focus on education—to achieve a better future.
True to its name, the organization is chaired by John Gokongwei, with his youngest brother James Go as president—though the son and daughters of “Big John” also play an active role. Believing that education is key to national upliftment, the foundation has invested heavily in education, providing generous endowments to numerous educational institutions. It recently inaugurated the GBF Technical Training Center in Pasig, billed as a “finishing school for graduates,” offering further instruction in various technical, engineering, and service-oriented fields.
