Donation and Fund-raising
- Donation of Hospital Equipment
AUDF has been spearheading fund-raising projects since 1988 for the benefit of AUFMC, which was awaiting completion back then. Negotiations with ten (10) hospitals in California and two in Wisconsin were successfully forged resulting to the donation of hospital equipment estimated at US$ 800,000.00. Last year alone, the World Medical Relief in Detroit, Michigan donated hospital equipment to AUFMC amounting to US$ 1,100,640.00.
Today, AUFMC is the only private tertiary teaching, training and research hospital in the Central Luzon region which serves as the base hospital of AUF's medical, nursing and allied medical students. AUFMC is noted for its strong corporate social responsibility (CSR) through its Indigency Program.
- Development Fund Campaign
AUDF has embarked on yet another ambitious project through its Development Fund Campaign to support the following major projects:
Scholarship Fund For The Poor
Educating the poor for free through various scholarships, grants and financial aids has earned for AUF the respect and admiration of the academic community.
AUF supports the education of 16% of its total student population. This is certainly way above the Philippine government's requirement of 5%.
For the past five years, AUF has spent some US $ 1.1 million ((Php 55 million) to support the education of 2,600 scholars by providing them free tuition and miscellaneous fees, books, school supplies, uniform, board and lodging facilities.
Sustaining the scholarship fund is a challenge AUF bravely faces through the support of AUDF.
Completion of the AUFMC Medical Tower
The Dr. Evangelina M. Macapagal Medical Tower is a 12-storey expansion project of AUFMC. Once completed, the Medical Tower will allow AUFMC to increase bed capacity and provide more specialized healthcare services.
The first five-floors of the Medical Tower were inaugurated on July 9, 2008 with President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo as principal sponsor. It is named in honor of the First Lady of President Diosdado Macapagal, 5th President of the Republic of the Philippines.
Establishment of the AUF Center for Youth Development
There are 164 private and public colleges and universities in Central Luzon but NONE is equipped with the needed facilities to engage in a continuing youth leadership development program. There is a compelling need to provide for an appropriate venue where the youth can be groomed into becoming good citizens through various academic, cultural and sports undertakings where they can develop self-reliance, imbibe social responsibility, nurture a spirit of volunteerism and help preserve the democratic tradition. The proposed AUF Center for Youth Development is a place where young people, regardless of race, creed and economic status, can join together in wholesome education, recreation and companionship, . It is anchored on the tenet: "YOUTH TODAY, LEADERS TOMORROW".
During the next five years, AUDF needs to raise US$ 22 million to support and sustain the aforementioned projects. Ambitious indeed, this pioneering effort will provide AUF and AUFMC strengthened institutional capacity to fulfill its objective of societal transformation through education, research, community service and improved public health.
The generosity of our benefactors will go a long way in providing the Filipino youth and other disadvantaged sectors of society a chance to uplift their lives. AUDF believes that helping make a difference in the lives of our people goes beyond providing them equal access to basic social services, it also means empowering them to make informed decisions and preparing them to assume important roles in society.
