BDO supports non-profit organizations

Banco De Oro, in partnership with Venture for Fund Raising, recently held a one-day forum on"Mobilizing and Managing Resources for Non-Profits" as a way of guiding the non-profit sector in ensuring financial stability via proper fund management and investor education program.

The forum, attended by about 150 participants, featured as resource speaker Marianne G. Quebral, executive director of Venture for Fund Raising, the first and only non-profit organization that serves the fund raising needs of other non-profits in the country and Asia. Quebral discussed fund raising concepts and principles; strategies and steps on how to plan and implement fund raising programs.

Anthony Emmanuel C. De Dios, assistant vice president for Investment Research and Strategy Department of BDO Trust and Investments Group, on the other hand, tackled the effective mobilization and management of resources. According to De Dios, Extra funds need not to be idle funds; these can be utilized to generate more savings for future projects and expenditures.

BDO, through its Trust and Investments Group, is actively supporting the non-profit sector and is committed to finding ways in making the sector's plans achievable.
