Jesus & Elizabeth Fernando Foundation, Inc. (a.k.a. JEF Foundation) is non-stock, non-profit organization aimed to operate and support charitable activities; develop programs that will uplift and improve lives for children and their families; uplift the spirits of senior and retired musicians who are forgotten in the society.
JEF Foundation is founded by Ms. Elizabeth S. Fernando, President & CEO of FERSAL Hotel Group (FHG) and Executive Vice President of JB Music & Sports, Inc. (JBMSI). JEF Foundation is officially incorporated as registered entity in August 13, 2013.
Even before its inception is formalized, FERSAL Hotel Group and JB Music headed by Ms. Fernando have been engaging in charitable works as form of Corporate Social Responsibility of both group of companies.
Funding is normally source out from net sales proceeds of the founder's biography book entitled "When I Was Eight" and FHG projects such as marathons and golf tournaments. Donations in any form are also welcome.
Volunteers are mostly employees of FHG and JBMSI, community neighborhood, friends and relatives of the Fernando's who are unselfishly giving part of their precious time and efforts through JEF Foundation, to reach out and realize its goals.
For the founder and her family, being successful in businesses even become more meaningful when it is shared to others, especially to the less fortunate, hence JEF Foundation is born.
