GT Foundation, Inc. (GTFI), the Ty family foundation, and the Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (FFCCCII) inked a memorandum of agreement to launch Share a Gift of Education (SAGE) III last September at the Federation Center in Binondo, Manila. Established in 2001 by GTFI’s sister foundation, Metrobank Foundation, Inc. (MBFI), in partnership with FFCCCII, SAGE is the brainchild of the late Metrobank and MBFI founder Dr. George S.K. Ty which aims to provide educational assistance to qualified members of the Filipino-Chinese families.
Through a P15 million fund, SAGE III will support 100 students from 33 Filipino-Chinese schools nationwide which include 15 schools in the National Capital Region, five (5) in Region 6, three (3) in Region 5, two (2) each for Regions 8 and 11 and one (1) school each for Regions 1, 3, 4A, 7, 12 and CARAGA.
