History

The League of Corporate Foundations (LCF) is a network of the largest operating and grant-making corporate foundations and corporations in the Philippines. The League has continued to be at the forefront of promoting and enhancing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) practice among its members and the larger business community since its formation in 1991.

The LCF was officially registered with the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on August 26, 1996. Among the significant events in the two-decade social development work of LCF are as follows:

1997

LCF was one of the six (6) of the largest networks of NGOs in the Philippines that organized the Philippine Council for NGO Certification (PCNC). The PCNC is a private, voluntary, non-stock, non-profit corporation whose main function is to certify non-profit organizations that meet established minimum criteria for financial management and accountability in the service to underprivileged Filipinos.

2001

In response to a Presidential Proclamation declaring the 1st week of July as National CSR Week, the LCF having been designated as the overall coordinating body to oversee the activities of the CSR week, started celebrating its annual CSR Expo and Conference.

2003

Recognizing the call for integration of CSR into the core business operations of companies, LCF amended its by-laws to accept as members the corporations that are interested in improving their CSR practice.

2006

LCF influenced the core of the business administration education program of the country to include 3 units of Social Responsibility and Good Governance subject.

2007

LCF established the Corporate Social Responsibility Institute (CSRI) to function as the research and capacity-building arm of LCF. With the aim of professionalizing the practice of CSR in the Philippines, the CSRI conducts research studies, publications, workshops and forums.

2010

LCF became one of the founding members of the ASEAN CSR Network, an association of organizations advocating for CSR in Southeast Asia. The other founding member organizations include ASEAN Foundation, Indonesia Business Links, International Chamber of Commerce-Malaysia, Singapore Compact for CSR, and The CSR Club of the Thai Listed Company Association

The League serves as its members' arena for exchanging ideas, information, experience, and technology as well as other concerns relevant to its CSR mandates and plans. One major avenue is through the program-based committees, such as the Arts and Culture, Education, Enterprise Development, Environment, and Health, representing the major areas of involvement of the entire membership. The committees provide opportunities for peer learning, collaboration, and partnership between and among members. The committees on Membership and Communications provide technical support to the operation of LCF.

Vision

To be the leading network in practice-based, strategic CSR that advances sustainable development in the Philippines.

Mission

To serve as a platform for CSR practitioners for knowledge-sharing, partnership building and resource leveraging toward relevant societal impact.

Core Values

Service and Stewardship
Honesty and Integrity
Transparency and Accountability

Strategic Pillars

Collective Impact

As a network, LCF will harness and leverage each member’s strengths and resources towards the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Philippine Development Plan (PDP). We should be able to bring effective strategies together, collaborate with one another, learn from each other and push for alignment and complementation. LCF hopes to document this and come up with a periodic report (e.g. CSR mapping) and communicate how our collective work impacts on the mission of nation building.

Practice Leadership

LCF has been known as a CSR thought leader since its establishment of the CSR Institute in 2007. From hereon, LCF will move from being a think tank to becoming the leader in practice-based strategic CSR. LCF hopes to impact on scoping the emerging or changing roles of the CSR practitioner, redefine development plans and setting a path to a more effective program management of their company’s or foundation’s initiatives, and also to help them in their own professional growth.

Institutional Sustainability

LCF, as an institution, will ensure that best practices in governance will be observed by management, and that each of its members is also capable of achieving or contributing to the achievement of this objective because at the heart of the league, is, us, members. We should be able to find meaning, relevance and need for us to become better corporate foundations and csr organizations. By improving membership engagement, delivering better member benefits, we hope to build a stronger network of CSR practitioners. We are also focusing on sustainable operations for the LCF secretariat by looking at the way we do things, and carefully managing our resources so we can deliver the most important values to you our members.
