Our Angels

Catalino D. Yap Sr.

(March 9, 1911-May 24, 1993)

Catalino D. Yap Sr. organized a number of schools in 1945 whose main purpose was to give an opportunity for those without sufficient means to at least complete their high school education. He was a volunteer in both the education and sports fields having been the organizer of the Central Luzon Athletic Association and one of the Founding Governors of the Philippine Amateur Athletic Federation (now known as the Philippine Olympic Committee). He was a long time officer of the Private Schools Association of the Philippines and president for over 10 years of the Philippine Association for Private Schools Colleges and Universities. He was the longtime auditor and international judge of the Gymnastics Association of the Philippines while concurrently serving as auditor as the Basketball Association of the Philippines.

Dr. Benita S. Yap

(January 12, 1925 – September 12, 2015)

Dr. Benita S. Yap was co-founder of the SACT College System and Honorary Chair of the BCY Foundation. Dr. Yap died last September 12, 2015. She remains an inspiring story of a quiet worker who served both the church and the community in many capacities. Generous with both her time and resources, she was easy to approach. She helped many complete their vocations. She ensured the familial atmosphere of organizations she was involved with, a reality which BCYF continually attempts to achieve.

Bro. Andrew Gonzalez, FSC

(February 29, 1940 – January 29, 2006)

A long time friend of the BCYF Founder, Bro. Andrew agreed to be the Founding Chairman of BCYF which he served until his death. That is why most of the meetings of the BCYF board in its infancy were at the board room of De La Salle University, and why the BCYF had instant acceptability as a serious organization in many circles. Bro. Andrew provided wisdom and guidance to the BCYF Founder, which was invaluable in ensuring that the path chosen was consistent with realities, resources, and the state of development in the Philippines and in the region.

Gov. Mariano Un Ocampo III

(February 2, 1934 – August 16, 2015)

When Bro. Andrew died, the BCYF Founder and First President assumed the role of Chairman, Mar Ocampo agreed to take over as president and be the partner of the new chairman in continuing the Foundation’s search for a mission and an approach consistent with its vision of having human dignity as the centerpiece of activities in CSR. BCYF started with projects in sports, education, and institution building for its first decade. In time, these efforts and a fortuitous meeting with Dr. Lilian Sison of the UST Graduate School would lead to this concept of CSR 3.0, a development which JJ Moreno and Dr. Wayne Visser helped complete. Mar Ocampo held the fort while the BCYF Founder negotiated arrangements with various individuals and organizations towards this dream of “Personal Social Responsibility” being the base of good works.
