FGG only operating in the Philippines, and if so,
does it plan on expanding to other countries?
At present, FGG’s headquarters is in New York,
but its operations are in the Philippines. FGG definitely
plans to expand to other countries in the future,
but for now it’s concentrating its efforts
in the Philippines.
want to donate, is it tax-deductable?
Yes. FGG is registered as a non-profit, non-stock
organization, certified as a 501c3; therefore,
all donations, love-gifts, tithes, offerings,
pledges, etc. are tax-deductible.
does FGG decide who gets a scholarship,
or what community to set up a feeding center?
There is always much research and screening involved.
FGG receives a list of scholars complete with
their application packet, and several of the staff
from the Program Officer right up to the Executive
Director gets to review and vote. The R&D
and Program Officers research the different demographics
and regions of the Philippines to determine which
communities would benefit most from an FGG feeding
interested in participating in some of the outreaches.
Can I volunteer, and if so, how?
Of course! FGG welcomes volunteers who want to
take part in any of its 3 programs: scholarship,
hunger alleviation and disaster relief. First
you must send us a letter of intent along with
your resume. If there is an upcoming trip to Manila,
Philippines, we will send you a packet detailing
the schedule of activities and programs. FGG will
help as much as possible but ultimately, you will
be responsible for raising the money to cover
your airfare and accommodation. Volunteers will
get the chance to make a visible and lasting difference
in some of the most destitute areas of the Philippines.
They will get the chance to visit schools and
seminaries, participate in the feeding centers
and medical outreaches, as well as help build
a warehouse to store disaster relief goods.
