About Angeles University Foundation
"The region's FINEST, among the country's BEST"
Angeles University Foundation, a non-stock, non-profit educational institution, was established on May 25, 1962 by Mr. Agustin P. Angeles, Dr. Barbara Y. Angeles and family. After only less than nine years of successful operation, the Institution was granted University status on April 16, 1971 by the Department of Education, Culture and Sports.
On December 4, 1975, the University was converted into a non-stock, non-profit educational foundation -- a decision of the founding family motivated by the sincere desire to perpetuate the missionary commitment of providing relevant and quality education to the Central Luzon region. Concomitant with this decision , the Angeles couple and their children, namely, Rosario, Lutgarda, Emmanuel, Antonio, Jesusa, Josefina and Lourdes executed a Deed of Donation of their shareholdings in favor of the foundation as starting fund which resulted to the relinquishment of their ownership and proprietary rights. AUF was incorporated under Republic Act No. 6055, otherwise known as the Foundation Law, and is a tax-exempt institution approved by the Philippine government. All donations and bequests given to the AUF are tax deductible.
On February 14, 1978, AUF was converted into a Catholic University making it the first in Central Luzon. Another historical event that took place on February 20, 1990 was the inauguration of the five-storey, 125-bed AUF Medical Center which now serves as the teaching, training and research hospital, the first ever in Central Luzon.
Since its conversion to an educational foundation, AUF has afforded to expand enormously through the generous support of its benefactors in the United States, Europe and Asia, through assistance of the Angeles University Development Foundation (AUDF) based in Arlington, Virginia.
Today, AUF has the highest percentage of faculty with graduate degrees in the region, and among the highest in the Philippines. These qualifications are the foundation for its vaunted quality instruction and research, as evidenced by:
