What is FAME?

The Filipino-American Memorial Endowment Incorporated (FAME) is a non-stock, non-profit foundation established in the Philippines and the United States by business executives and veterans. Founded in 1986 under the auspices of the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, Inc. FAME, Inc is solely supported by donations with an all-volunteer Board and Advisory Councils.

 

Mission

FAME‘s mission is to help preserve and maintain tangible reminders of the shared values for which Americans, Filipinos and their allies fought side-by-side in World War II.

Service

We are in contact with a large network of veterans organizations and former POW’s (individuals and organizations) who provide a variety of information dissemination and exchange, enabling us to assist interested parties to trace whereabouts of individuals (e.g.,MIA’s) or events of WWII.

We are a non-profit organization with limited staff therefore we ask that a donation be made to FAME to cover expenses for any such services involving research, documentation, mailing services and other incidentals.
