In line with the culminating celebration of the 90th Founding anniversary of FEU, the Alumni Relations Office in partnership with Nicanor Reyes Memorial Foundation unveiled the FEU Centennial Tree last December 8, 2018.

Prominently placed at the ground floor of the Admission Building, the said tree aims to acknowledge and give recognition to donors of the OneFEUfund Campaign. This initiative also provides an avenue for members of the FEU community, its friends and partners to help lay down the foundation of future tamaraws in the next ten years or until the 100th year founding anniversary of the University in 2028.

Chair Emeritus Dr. Lourdes R. Montinola, Chair Aurelio R. Montinola, and Dr. Rosalind Wee led the unveiling. Present also during the event are FEU Board of Trustee member, Sherisa Nuesa, Atty. Gianna Montinola, Mr. Ramon Fererros (President of IAS Alumni Association), FEU Green and Gold Outstanding Alumni Awardees; Mr. Victoriano Cruz (President of the FEU Alumni Foundation), Dr. Karen Remo, Architect Hernando Advento, and Mr. Angel Baustista to name a few. Dr. Wee, who is also an Outstanding Alumna and first donor, gave the response on behalf of the first set of donors.

A minimum donation of ₱250,000.00 will merit you a bronze leaf while ₱500,000.00 and ₱1,000,000.00 will be silver and gold leaves respectively. The proceeds of this campaign will support the following programs;

a. Scholarships and Financial Aid. FEU funds an average of over 3,500 scholars every year, providing about 11% of the total student population with the future-ready skills to help them achieve their academic and career goals.

b. Faculty Development and Research. FEU has programs to support faculty in their doctoral studies abroad. FEU also funds research in areas such as Biodiversity, urban renewal, public health, genetics, sociolinguistics, and indigenous cultures.

c. Sports Development. Giving to FEU Athletics directly impacts the success of student-athletes by means of international training and competition, coaches’ development, academic support, and allowances.

d. Artistic Development. With your support, FEU student-artists will have more opportunities to compete abroad, internationalize their education, and further develop their artistry.

e. Community Service. Through its Volunteerism Services, and Tamaraw Volunteers (a university-wide student volunteer organization), FEU continues to lead the conservation of endangered Tamaraws in Mindoro, build homes for the homeless, provide entrepreneurial programs, give hope to those in prisons, and provide assistance to victims of calamities.
