Boracay Foundation, Inc. was established in 1997 as a non-profit, non-stock, association aimed in sustaining the island’s environmental, business and social needs. It is currently composed of over a hundred fifty members representing Boracay’s leading establishments including resorts, hotels, restaurants, water sports, market stalls, airlines, banks, island organizations, residents and expatriates.
As an environment-conscious organization, BFI believes that without a healthy environment, tourism cannot be sustained for long. It is for this reason that it is actively involved in various environment preservation and restoration activities and projects such as solid waste management and underwater environment protection through close cooperation with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) through the Philippine Partnership Program.
To promote business and growth on the island, BFI facilitates the marketing and promotional programs of its members in its vision to maintain Boracay as the country’s premier tourist destination. It also leverages on the power of online marketing and promotion through www.boracayisland.org – which provide updates on island activities and a comprehensive directory of members and non-members as well.
As a dynamic and focused organization, BFI is also involved in the development of communities surrounding the island through workshops, seminars, and projects to improve professionalism in tourism-related services. It undertakes its community-based activities in close coordination with various government agencies.
BFI works hand in hand with the local administration, the provincial government and the Department of Tourism, whereby it is part of the Boracay Beach Management Program, Environment Solid Waste Monitoring Team and the Provincial Special Development Council. It also serves as a conduit between the business community and the local, provincial and national government agencies.
With all that, I am sure that you will love being a member of the Boracay Foundation, Inc.
We are inviting members of the community and businesses operating in the island, to join the BFI and be part of this organization that strives to: “Preserve what we have and restore what we lost in the Island of Boracay.
