Founded in May 1991, the Juanito I.King Foundation, Inc. (JIKFI) was conceptualized by Juanito Ibañez King and his children in order to centralize and oragnize the family's response to requests for assistance from both individuals and groups seeking financial support.
It serves as a resource agency to assist people in need, but as an implementing agency, with the launching of the Scholarship Program. This program is an affirmation of their family's commitment to help the then thirty-strong workforce of King’s Quality Foods, Inc. and Nito’s Auto Supply put their children through college, with the belief that education helps break the bonds of poverty! The Foundation has since expanded the scholarship program in terms of size and coverage to respond to the ever-growing need for educational assistance, and consequently benefiting deserving students both inside and outside the company. Early 2011, the Scholarship Program was defined as Education Program as JIKFI branches its services from providing Scholarships to inclusion of Technical-Vocational & Skills Training and Education Enhancement Projects which focuses in building school classrooms, setting-up computer laboratories for public elementary schools in mountainous areas of Cebu City and public schools teachers training.
The Foundation has further defined its commitment to service when it initiated the operation of a mobile dental van in collaboration with the Cebu Dental Chapter (a branch of the Philippine Dental Association) in 2003. The mobile dental van currently provides free dental services to poor and marginalized communities in Cebu and neighboring provinces five (5) days a week. In 2009, in order to strengthen its commitment to social welfare and development, it adopted the DREAM for Children with Special Needs Project. DREAM Project’s activities are geared towards providing quality and sustainable therapy services to children with special needs in Cebu.
It is with this sincere commitment to social responsibility that through the years, JIKFI has continued to provide financial assistance to various institutions, programs, activities, projects and initiatives for the advancement of education, arts and culture, sports, health and nutrition, social welfare and development, church and family welfare, business and ecology. Moreover, the Foundation intends to continue implementing its education and health programs for its current beneficiaries, and then aspire to be more relevant, and expand to wider horizons in order to see the Foundation’s goals achieved and its vision-mission fulfilled.
