Paying forward

Birthdays are among the most important of anniversaries. We love celebrating birthdays! It is possible, though, that at one time or another, during a quiet lull, we may have felt a “gnawing emptiness” while celebrating our birthday with our family and friends…. or that we may have sensed that mysterious haunting need for “something more” to make our birthday celebrations more complete…. our Ateneo days remind us of the “voice that calls within… to find a higher dream in the greater scheme of things….”

Here is a simple but wonderful way of making each of our birthdays more significant, more meaningful, more in the spirit of Jesuit education and the Ateneo way:

Offer, in Thanksgiving, 365 Pesos every Birthday, Once a Year,
to help Poor and Deserving Students get an Ateneo Education!

  • The P365 can be a symbolic way of saying Thank You for the Gift of Life every single day of the year.
  • It can be a giving something back by offering a peso a day for each of the 365 days of the year.
  • The P365 Birthday Offering multiplied by the thousands of other Ateneans near and far can help poor but deserving students face a brighter future with their families!
  • It can be one more affirmation about Ateneans working together to make a difference!
