About

Both our parents, Conrado and Ladislawa, led exemplary lives. They lived their lives in simplicity and hard work, and derived satisfaction in knowing that they have helped others.

In their lifetimes, they helped countless numbers of people through employment in the various businesses they established together in the span of 35 years. Employment enabled people to give their families better lives and better opportunities to educate their children well. They always counseled employees that a good education is the best gift they can give their children. 

The Conrado and Ladislawa Alcantara Foundation was established to honor the memory of our parents and the work they did together. 

– Rosvida Alcantara Dominguez, Trustee 

The Alcantara Foundation is supported by member companies of the Alcantara Group. The Foundation is an expression of the continued commitment of the Alcantara Group to Mindanao’s development.

AF has a particular focus in Sarangani province, one of the five poorest provinces in the Philippines. Sarangani is home to Southern Philippines Power Corporation, Alsons Aquaculture Corporation, FinFish Hatcheries, and Sarangani Agricultural Company, Inc. 

Alcantara Group member companies also implement their own community development programs in their respective areas of operation. 

AF is a member of the Association of Foundations  and is Vice Chair of SPECTRUM (Sarangani Province Empowerment and Community Transformation Forum), a nonprofit coalition in Sarangani.
