PCNC Advisory: REPORT FROM THE BOARD, May 27, 2014


2013 was a very challenging year for the NGO community in the country.  The exposes about the channeling of government funds through “bogus” NGOs tarnished the image of the NGO community in the eyes of the general public.  This led to a stricter monitoring and implementation of rules and regulations by government agencies, especially the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) in the governance of non-stock, non-profit corporations or NGOs and Foundations.
