Sambayan Educational Foundation, Inc. (SEFI)
In 1972, the enrollment in STC was democratized to open the doors of quality Catholic Education to a wider set of social classes. This orientation was deliberate to put into practice the ICM Foundress' challenge to "Have a heart like that of Jesus, so generous and great that the whole world can find room in it." It was STC's social response to bridge the gap between the
rich and the poor.

What is the S.E.F.I.?
The Sambayan Educational Foundation, Inc. or SEFI was organized in 1972 by the Missionary Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (ICM) and a group of STCQC parents and alumnae. Its main objective is to make available quality
education for less privileged but deserving students.

How is the SEFI program different from other scholarship programs?   The SEFI program is not a scholarship program. It is a reduced tuition fee scheme for eleven years of schooling from Prep until High School for qualified lower-middle-income groups. It is perhaps the only such program in existence in the Philippines today. Applicants have to pass a rigorous set of criteria as well as entrance exams to qualify. Once a student has been accepted into the program, a social worker regularly monitors her progress and checks on the family environment. The privacy and confidentiality of this arrangement is also assured.

How has the SEFI been funded through the years?
The initial seed money was provided by the ICM congregation. STCQC parents, alumnae and friends have made substantial contributions to the fund through the years.

Why a SEFI Endowment Fund?
Yearly, the SEFI has to raise P2 million plus to finance an average of 400 students, who comprise 11 to 12% of the school population. To support the program, a P30 million Endowment Fund is needed. The Fund stands at about P8 million at present so our aim is to raise P22 million. Once we have reached
the targeted amount, we will never need to appeal for more since the fund shall be enough to support all SEFI grantees. You can contribute to a SEFI ENDOWMENT with a minimum of P500,000; you can be a SEFI PILLAR with P250,000; a BENEFACTOR with P100,000; a SPONSOR with P50,000; a PATRON with P25,000; a DONOR with P10,000; and a FRIEND with any amount offered.

How can I benefit from contributing to the SEFI Endowment Fund?
All contributions are tax deductible. But more than that, you will have left a lasting legacy. Your contribution will make a difference in a young person's life. And since we intend to invest the Fund and only utilize the interest, your contribution will continue to benefit our grantees in perpetuity. Our more than one thousand five hundred SEFI grantees will attest to that.
