An Initiative to Leave your Legacy

UPAAA Permanent Endowment Fund

UPAAA provides scholarships, financial assistance, and emergency funds. We help UP students at 8 constituent universities across 17 campuses in the Philippines, as well as UP alums studying in the US, stay on their academic paths, and succeed.

An endowment is a gift that keeps on giving. Your donation will become part of the UPAAA Permanent Endowment Fund that is invested in the US and managed by the UPAAA Finance and Funds Committee, together with expert fund advisors. This Fund is invested in such a way as to earn enough interest to support the needs of your preferred way of making a difference. The principal amount of your donation will be kept in the Fund in perpetuity, meaning, your
legacy will live on forever.

Why Donors Give to the UPAAA PEF





I want to help students pursue their dreams.  It makes me happy to know that somehow my donation has the potential to improve an individual’s quality of life.

What Students Say About UPAAA

The UPAAA stipend helped me buy a new smartphone for online classes and school-related requirements. I also used some of the money for my family's basic needs when Typhoon Odette hit our place. Thank you...UPAAA. May God bless you all a thousand-fold!
