The Philippine-American (Phil-Am) Fund is a five-year project of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) awarded to the Gerry Roxas Foundation on August 5, 2013. The Project provides opportunities for non-state institutions to devise new solutions for many of the Philippines’ development challenges. The Project acts as a grant-making facility to support business start-ups and promote innovation through entrepreneurship, advance citizen advocacy for greater accountability and integrity, and support programs geared towards combating human trafficking, technology-based solutions to child and adult illiteracy and improved management of natural resources and biodiversity.
The Phil-Am Fund project is now in its 4th year of implementation. To date, we have awarded 37 grants to a diverse group of private sector partners nationwide to support activities that promote inclusive growth.
