Not content merely crusade, the INQUIRER puts its money where its mouth is. Providing valuable media space, and through active employee involvement, advocacy campaigns and sustained partnerships with companies, civic groups and government, we step beyond news coverage to directly address community needs.
For these efforts and initiatives, Inquirer has earned the respect and recognition of prestigious social development groups such as the League of Corporate Foundations and the Philippine Business for Social Progress, and now sits in both associations as their sole print media member.
LEAGUE OF CORPORATE FOUNDATIONS(LCF) MEMBERSHIP
To promote reading, the Inquirer not only publishes special youth sections but also conducts award-winning youth readership programs like seminars, debates and educational tours– because we know today’s readers are tomorrow’s active, critical leaders.
