About Us

The Tenorio Foundation was created in September of 2018 under The State of Wisconsin, United States. The nonprofit status (501c3) (EIN: 83-1859695) was awarded by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in September of 2018. 



Our vision is to be a trusted partner and ally to the people of the Philippines. 



Our current mission is to increase healthcare access and provide equitable healthcare delivery to the people of the Philippines. 


We hope to expand our services to also provide auxiliary humanitarian services and opportunities such as: education opportunities (sponsor/ scholarships, seminars, trainings, and programs), mission trips around the Philippines, collaboration with other organizations for wage improvement or job creation, and projects to further improve the infrastructure of the Philippines. 

Core Values

Our vision and mission are accomplished with our three core values:

Empowerment through Education 

The Tenorio Foundation wants to empower the Filipino people. We want to do this by educating the people of the Philippines by providing educational materials, seminars, trainings, and other relevant programs/ modules relevant for better health and overall quality of life. 


Aesthetic but Empathetic 

We hope to not only look the part but also handle the foundation with the utmost finesse. The Tenorio Foundation boasts its aesthetic feel and the way it operates its activities; however, it never ceases its empathy and people-focused paradigm. The Foundation was founded on empathy and inspiration and will continue to carry this out with much gusto. 


Philanthropically Grounded  

Our operations will carefully analyze the cost-to-benefit ratio to maximize the benefits received whilst minimizing costs. The Tenorio Foundation prides itself on having magnanimous philanthropic ideas that are also grounded and ready for action.
