SM Foundation is the corporate responsibility arm of the SM Group of Companies through which the SM Group helps the communities it serves. These communities are areas in the vicinity of the SM department stores and Supermalls that are in need of assistance. The Foundation has four areas of advocacy: education, through scholarship programs and the building of schoolhouses; a mall-based outreach program; health care, through medical missions, mobile clinics and hospital activity centers; housing and community projects.
SM Cares is a program born to consolidate and coordinate all of SM Prime's corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives. Carried out in all the 40 SM malls nationwide, SM Cares' award-winning CSR projects cover the environmental conservation (energy, air and water), and care and assistance to customers of SM malls with special needs such as the disabled, special children, the elderly and nursing mothers. SM Cares is SM Prime's commitment to be one of the country's leading CSR advocates.
