Story of the Eugenio Lopez Foundation donation to AIM:
The Lopez Family, led by its patriarch, Don Eugenio Lopez, Sr., was instrumental in the establishment of AIM. In 1968, the founders of AIM were looking for a donor to support the construction of the building that they envision to become the center for progressive learning and rigorous training.
When they approached Don Eugenio, the latter readily donated PhP7.4 million (through the Eugenio Lopez Foundation) to construct the new AIM building, which also comprised a two-story library and a six-story dormitory. This donation, reported by the Manila Chronicle in 1969 as “the largest donation…(representing) the biggest single contribution to an educational institution in the history of (this) country” enabled the construction of the Eugenio Lopez Foundation Building.
More than forty years later, in July 2010, the Lopez family, through LGFI chairman emeritus Oscar M. Lopez, reaffirmed their strong support to AIM, through a donation to renovate the ground floor lobby, offices and case rooms of the Eugenio Lopez foundation Building.
