As early as 1990, the children of Mr. Simplicio Gamboa, Sr. pursued a strong resolve to immortalize their father’s passion for formal education by establishing a foundation in his name.
Initially capitalized with funds and assets from various business ventures of the Gamboa family, SGS Foundation, Inc. (SGSFI) was formally registered with the Securities and Exchange Commision (SEC) in 1991 as a non-stock and non-profit corporation.
To date, SGSFI has sponsored over 200 graduate scholars, a good number of which have passed board and licensure exams. They are now pursuing their respective careers in various fields, thereby becoming themselves contributors to the country’s productivity and development.
The foundation continues to extend its reach to the great many other young people in need of educational support. Partnerships with 14 universities and colleges, including Adamson University and Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila have been forged to further boost efforts in singling out deserving scholars. Moreover, the foundation recently engaged in various community outreach projects to help address medical, health and other social needs.
