WHY GIVE?

All over the world, many UP alumni and friends give to UP.

These donors are clearly aware of UP’s role is revitalizing the Philippine countryside. Everyday, there is a UP alumnus or alumna working on a groundbreaking cultural, scientific, political or social project. UP graduates continue to dominate government licensure examinations. Most National Artists & National Scientists, many Philippine Presidents, senators, congressmen & women, heads of state colleges & universities, and pioneering figures in every imaginable discipline are UP alumni or faculty members.

Whether big or small, a donation to UP is an investment for the future of the Philippines. Donations may fund scholarships for financially underprivileged but exceptionally gifted students or professorial chairs that frequently augment salaries of internationally acclaimed artists, scientists and other scholars. Endowments to the university may also include donations to help maintain the Philippine General Hospital, academic programs, dormitories, classrooms, laboratories, lecture halls, information technology rooms and other facilities.

Recently, the London-based research and ratings firm Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) released its world university rankings, where no Philippine university made the top 300.Only UP, Ateneo de Manila, De La Salle University and the University of Santo Tomas made it to  the top 600 list. Save for UP, no other state college or university made the list as QS noted the declining government spending on education. The huge government cut on the budget for state colleges and universities will not allow UP to maximize its potentials as the country’s only national university. UP needs the assistance and generosity of donors to sustain its creative and innovative endeavors.

UP donors are visionaries. They know that giving to UP is the best way to invest in the future of the Philippines. People give to UP because it is a place where they can get the best possible return on that investment.

When you give, you empower UP to make a difference.

Please make a gift to UP. Kapag tumaya ka sa UP, tumaya ka na rin para sa lalong ikauunlad ng ating bayan.
