Building a brighter world with Sun Life Foundation Building a brighter world with Sun Life Foundation

When Sun Life established its roots in the Philippines, we made a commitment to help Filipinos achieve a sustainable future.


When Sun Life established its roots in colonial Manila, we made a commitment to help Filipinos achieve a sustainable future. Through world wars and economic downturns, we bore witness to a country’s journey towards financial prosperity and security. And for a nation that has nurtured us for more than a century, it is finally time to give back. In 1992, we started Sharing Hope and Resources for Education and Social Services or S.H.A.R.E.S. Here, our spirit of volunteerism shined brighter, from relief efforts to building houses for the homeless. And the light of generosity radiated through the company, inspiring Sun Lifers to truly make a difference.

Incorporated in 2007, the Sun Life Foundation became the culmination of our deep and collective desire to help alleviate the plight of those most in need. Here, our mission to create a Brighter World takes flight through different meaningful initiatives aimed towards nation-building –one individual, one family, one community at a time. For Sun Life, a Brighter World ensures the future of generations while creating a prosperous present.


To uplift the lives of marginalized Filipinos through holistic and sustainable community development initiatives encompassing health and wellness, education, environmental sustainability, and arts and culture.

To engage Sun Lifers in meaningful community transformation initiatives, embracing the spirit of ‘bayanihan’ for the benefit of those who are most in need.



Vision: We are a committed corporate foundation successful in sustaining community transformation initiatives

Mission: To uplift the lives of Filipinos by providing financial resources, time and talents in support of education and culture, good health, and a wholesome environment.





Guided by its four pillars (Education, Health, Environment, and Arts and Culture) with a focus on Financial Literacy, the Foundation embraces the inspiring stories of its beneficiaries. From establishing a model resettlement community to creating an award-winning volunteer program, we share the triumphs and challenges in building a Brighter World
