The US-Philippines Society is an independent, non-partisan, bi-national organization that plays an important role in fostering mutual understanding between the United States and the Philippines. Headquartered in Washington, DC, the society was launched in 2012 with the mission of enhancing and strengthening the Philippine-US relationship while raising awareness of today’s Philippines through programs on business, governance, culture, shared history, education, strategic issues, and conflict resolution.
Over the last seven years, the US-Philippines Society has provided assistance for disaster relief and rehabilitation. In 2018, it raised funds to provide health, education, and livelihood assistance to families displaced in Marawi City.
