The PCC is maintained by volunteers and solely funded by private donations and fundraising activities including the annual Miss Philippines and Mrs. Philippines pageants.
The Millennium Tree is a beautiful tree mounted on the wall in the lobby of the Philippine Cultural Center with brass leaves, hanging fruits (mangoes) and rocks at its roots, all of which bear personalized inscriptions from financial supporters of the Philippine Cultural Center (PCC).
As donations are made, the tree will “grow”, symbolizing the kindness of those whose support helps to provide cultural education for future generations.
Each leaf of The Millennium Tree represents a commitment of $500 toward the PCC. A gift of $1,000 is signified by an inscription on a small rock at the tree’s base. A gift of $2,000 earns an inscription on a larger rock at the tree’s base. A gift of $5,000 is required for an inscription on a mango. The gifts made by each donor will help provide funds for the maintenance of the PCC.
Gifts may be made as direct contributions or as pledge commitments over a 10 or 20 month period. All gifts are completely tax deductible. CUFOT is a non-profit 501-c(3) organization.
