Volunteer at registration and course monitor of a Trail Race in Beautiful North Park near Pittsburgh. This benefits an Orphanage in the Philippines. 14th year! Filipino Food provided to volunteers and ethnic dancing after the race! Really a great time for a great cause!
Our vision is a dynamic and vibrant Filipino American community that is valued and recognized as an integral part of America's ethnic diversity. To achieve this dream, the FAAP is dedicated to preserve, promote and perpetuate the Filipino heritage among its members and the general public through cultural, charitable and educational programs.
The association started out as an informal social gro up in 1957. It was formally organized as the Samahang Pilipino ng Pittsburgh (SPNP) in 1964 and renamed the Filipino American Association of Pittsburgh, Inc. (FAAP) in 2000 when it was incorporated as a non-profit organization. It has been granted public charity status and classified as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The FAAP is a strong and dynamic organization, thanks to its hard-working team of volunteers and supportive members. There is no paid staff and all FAAP funds are directed towards its programs.
