2014 College Scholarship Grant Awardees

We have two new scholarship recipients this year!

The Klaus Pfaender College Scholarship is granted to Ivan Kent Tad-y, a soon-to-be chemical engineering student at the University of St. La Salle - Bacolod City. The scholarship namesake, Klaus Pfaender, and his wife Maricar Totengco, have been committed donors of Tapulanga Foundation's scholarship program for many years.

Two years ago, he held his 60th birthday celebration in Spain and, in lieu of gifts, asked his guests to donate to the Foundation. This effort led to a home theatre system and two aircon units in the AVR, and two new computers in the lab. Besides his college scholarship grants, he also sponsored ten scholars this year alone.

Our second recipient is Thalea Segaya, whose scholarship grant comes from a very generous, yet anonymous donor of the Foundation. Thalea plans to take up a degree in Education at Carlos Hilado Memorial State College (CHMSC).

Congratulations, Ivan and Thalea!

75 Scholars in 30 Days Challenge

Can you help us make a difference in the life of a child today?

The Tapulanga Foundation is gearing up for the new school year once again. Please join us by sponsoring a scholar and give them the gift of education for a year.

We have 75 new scholars ready to start school in June. They have passed their entrance exams and our challenge is to find a sponsor for these deserving students - all 75 of them.

For as little as $30 or Php1,250/month, you can send a scholar to school for a year. You will get to know your scholar personally through letters and 100% of your donation goes directly towards their education.

Please Join Us and make a Difference in a Child's life!

**This program ends on April 30, 2014. Please forward this to at least 3-5 friends and be a part of The 75 Scholars In 30 Days Challenge! Each donor will be acknowledged on our Facebook page along with a photo of their scholar. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization - all donations are tax-deductible.**
