CERV receives grant from Australian company

Australian company BHP Billiton awarded CERV with an AUS$1,800 grant in support of its various projects in Quezon City.

The said donation is part of the company’s Matched Giving Program through Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) Australia.

This program provides an incentive matching the active involvement of its employees in community organizations whether by volunteering, fund-raising or cash donations (including payroll-giving).

CAF, for its part, is an international not-for-profit organization with long-standing experience in the provision, management and administration of programs for Corporate Community Involvement and BHP Billiton has outsourced their administration of this program to CAF-Australia.

CERV was recommended to be a grant recipient by BHP Billiton engineer Scott Dennis who volunteered last December 2008 in the school building maintenance program.  (Scroll down for related story on volunteers Scott Dennis and Jennifer Duncombe.)

CERV is open to other grants and donations to benefit poor Filipino communities in Quezon City and Romblon Province through these links:  Interested donors who wish to assist poor Filipino may donate through this links: (tax-deductible in the United States) and  You may also email CERV directly at
