Creating Opportunities for a Better Future

Henry Sy, Sr. believes that education is the best defense against poverty. We at SM Foundation provide college and technical-vocational scholarship grants as well as access to primary education through school buildings to help the youth achieve their dreams.

“You are young with the future before you. Remember the young boy who arrived in Manila many years ago, a stranger with nothing to his name…

If I can do it, the young people of today can do it too.”

Henry Sy, Sr.
