"The mission of the US-Philippines Society is to build on the rich and longstanding
historical ties between the United States of America and the Philippines.

…and to bring that unique relationship to the 21st century."

The Society is a private sector initiative organized to broaden and expand interaction and understanding through basic research and/or applied research in the areas of security, trade, investments, tourism, the environment, history, education and culture between the United States and the Philippines which would benefit the American public and the people of the Philippines

With the opening of its offices in Washington, D.C. on May 1, 2012, the U.S.- Philippines Society realized the vision of its founders to create a new and timely mechanism for elevating the Philippines’ profile in the United States. The Society’s mission is to build on the rich and longstanding historical ties between the two nations and help to bring that unique relationship fully into the 21st century at a junction when U.S. policy interests are increasingly focused on East Asia.

As a 501c3 non-profit, non-partisan, and independent organization, the Society receives no funding or direction from either U.S. or Philippine government institutions and relies on the generosity of donors and active member support to develop and carry out programs that highlight today’s Philippines and contribute to Philippines-US relations.

While corporate support will remain key to future success, the Society seeks to build a broad membership base, in part by targeting the growing community of four million Filipino-Americans, many of whom are building successful professional careers.
