The PhilSeven Foundation (PFI) is the corporate social responsibility arm of Philippine Seven Corporation (PSC).
PSC initiated the establishment of PFI on October 2, 2007 to support its corporate social responsibility programs. PFI was granted a certificate of registration by DSWD on August 6, 2010, after completing the 2-year operations requirement. BIR issued a certificate of registration dated December 21, 2011 recognizing PFI as a donee institution and said certificate of registration was re-issued by BIR last August 10, 2018 which is valid for 3 years. On October 10, 2013, PFI became a member of the League of Corporate Foundations, Inc. On July 08, 2016, DSWD issued a certificate of registration to PFI allowing it to expand its operations from NCR to nationwide which was renewed last April 22, 2019 and is valid for 3 years.
PFI’s Vision, Mission, Goals & Objectives:
Operating the largest convenience store network in the country, PSC, through PFI, has the capability to help in sustaining communities in the Philippines. The initial beneficiaries of PFI were barangays where its stores are located, giving back to the community where it operates. PSC aims to make a difference in these communities through various programs as provided below.
The Company intends to continue these programs with priority given to education, health, and nutrition. Beneficiaries are usually children from poorer families, as part of PSC’s advocacy of giving back to the communities where 7-Eleven stores are located. To know more about PFI’s activities, please refer to the Corporate Social Responsibility page of this book, “Corporate Social Responsibility Highlights” and their website www.philseven.com.
Because of these efforts, PSC was honored by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) with the Salamat Po award, recognizing PSC as Development Partner in the Corporate Institution Category. The award was given to PSC during the celebration of DSWD’s 67th Founding anniversary on March 8, 2018.
PFI has also been recognized with the PaNataKo sa Bayan (PANATA) Award for Best Volunteer by the DSWD for its efforts to reach out to the community.
PFI is also the beneficiary of PSC’s annual events, 7-Eleven Run Series and 7-Eleven Trail Series.
