The Jacinto-Gaudiosa Alegado Foundation, Inc. (ALEGADO FOUNDATION) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that was founded with the goal of providing medical aid to some of our world's most remote communities. The foundation was organized by members of the Alegado family, descendants of Jacinto Rama Alegado and Gaudiosa Ingking Alegado, both of Dungo-an, Bolinawan, Carcar City, Philippines. The values that Jacinto and Gaudiosa instilled in their children — community, education, the conviction to uplift others in need — are the very principles that compelled their descendants to create the Alegado Foundation in 2007. Today, three generations of the Alegado line work alongside a group of incredible volunteers and partners to bring forth that vision of goodwill and effective global aid to life. Coming from a long line of educators and healthcare professionals, we believe that we can draw from our collective knowledge to create solutions that alleviate poverty and promote self-sufficiency.
