Ayala's 185th Anniversary
Ayala owes its existence to the previous seven generations of managers whose incredible talent has kept the company stable for 185 years. Each generation has brought Ayala to where it is today.
185 Years of Seeing Potential
Ayala Corporation marks its 185th year in business with a deepened dedication to help realize the country’s potential. Shared by seven generations and spanning almost two centuries, this commitment continues to be the core strength of the Ayala group in both its business and its social responsibility.
Faces of Ayala's Social Commitment
Starting Over with a Little Help From Your Friends
Sam Abanto, 48 years old, lost everything to Typhoon Ondoy but has rallied against all odds to eventually lead an organic farming cooperative in Calauan, Laguna. With the help of Ayala Foundation through the MDC Greens program, Sam’s group found a way to better their lives through social entrepreneurship.
Ayala Citizens Commit 185,000 Volunteer Hours
As Ayala Corporation celebrates its 185th year in business, it has renewed its commitment to help improve Filipino lives by calling on all Ayala Citizens across its companies to help achieve 185,000 hours of volunteer work in communities where they live and work.
After 185 years, Ayala remains committed to the Filipino.
Project at Work
Assisted Natural Regeneration
As part of Ayala Land’s (ALI) Alagang AyalaLand program, Assisted Natural Regeneration (ANR) activities aim to protect and expand permanent forest ecosystems. Aside from the planting of saplings, ANR focuses on activities that foster growth of endemic tree species such as tending to wild native seedlings, removal of weeds that suppress growth of existing trees and highlights the importance of environmental stewardship.
ANR is one of the many strategies in support of ALI’s sustainability goal of becoming the first Philippine company to target carbon neutrality by 2022.
Volunteerism Hour Counter
Share the Love, Blood Drive was spearheaded by Ayala Multi-Purpose Cooperative in partnership with the Ayala Business Clubs as well as other groups in the company for the benefit of The Philippine Red Cross and National Kidney Institute.
"I've been donating blood twice a year for the longest time. I started doing this because my Lola got sick years ago and she needed a blood transfusion. All her grandkids donated and that was the first time I did it. If it saves a life at such little cost why not, so I've been doing it ever since.
Ayala has been around for 185 years and it has changed so many lives, so if I can contribute in my own little way through this, then why not."
|By partnering with Hineleban Foundation, a 100-peso donation can go a long way - it can be instrumental in rainforestation efforts and can reduce carbon footprint. To learn more visit https://hineleban.org/|
|Through Project 1 Phone, everyone is encouraged to turn their e-waste into something more meaningful - public school classrooms across the country. Each piece of an old phone, laptop, desktop, keyboard, mouse, charger, cable, and other electronic wastes will contribute to better quality education.

The Ayala group’s participation in the DENR’s Battle for Rivers and Esteros through Manila Water’s Toka Toka Oplan Estero demonstrates the group’s commitment in helping the country restore its precious waterways. MWC’s TokaToka campaign aims to consistently engage in clean-up activities and educate people on how they can contribute in protecting the environment. Toka Toka is the first and only used water movement in the Philippines that encourages individuals and communities to do their share in environmental protection.
Since its inception in 2012, the program continues to foster and strengthen partnerships with various national government agencies, local government units, (LGUs), and the private sector to further advance the movement.
