Christmas arrived early this year!
Last Saturday, Colayco Foundation gave two financial Yuletide treats to everyone. In the morning was INVESTability: Mutual Funds. Mr. Armand Q. Bengco, the foundation’s Executive Director, facilitated the seminar. The participants were first introduced to goal setting and the basics of mutual funds. Mr. Bengco emphasized that before going into any investment, the participants needed to be clear and definite with their goals. Their goals serve to give them guidance and direction, especially when to get out of investing. In the latter part, Mr. Bengco then taught strategies on how to invest in mutual funds.
The weekend Yuletide treat continued on with the Pera Mo, Palaguin Mo Workshop in the afternoon. Mr. Bengco again facilitated the workshop. Aside from learning the basic ropes of proper personal finance, the participants learned how to create financial plans and calculate the amount needed to achieve it. Using retirement as a take-off point, the attendees learned how to identify how much they need to retire. The knowledge and skills they learned can also be applied to any financial goal they wish to have. After the workshop, they all felt more confident and empowered in making and reaching their financial goals!
It’s not too late to give a Merry Christmas to your corporation or organization! Just call 637-3731 or 637-3741 and look for Mr. James Gonzales.

Guess who got an early Christmas treat?
Last November 16, Colayco Foundation conducted a whole-day financial seminar at EDNAS School. In the morning, a workshop for students and parents was given to elementary (Grade 1 to 6) students and their parents. Mr. Armand Bengco (Tito Armand to the kids) facilitated the entire session.
Kids enjoying Mr. Bengco's humor
Candid moment with the kids
The students went to their respective classrooms and were given a series of fun-filled activities to do. All activities were grounded on three important money matters: saving, spending, and sharing. Grade 1 to 3 students painted their own piggy banks, identified their needs and wants, and made paper planes with their realizations written on it.
The kids showing off their work
On the other hand, Grade 4 to 6 students shared ways to save and the things their parents buy, created a tableaux of how to share what they have, and (like their younger counterparts) made paper planes with their learnings on it.
While the kids were enjoying the different money-matter activities, Mr. Bengco conducted a financial management workshop for the parents. He taught them the basics of proper personal finance and techniques on how parents can apply these to their children. He also introduced various investment opportunities for the parents to consider, especially when it comes to family-related financial goals.
After two hours, the students were brought back to the gymnasium and released their paper plans!
Mr. Bengco with an EDNAS student at the Pera Game
The luster and excitement in the morning session continued in the afternoon. This time, the session was for grade 7 to 4th year high school students. Mr. Bengco once again facilitated the session. He emphasized to the students the importance of four financial activities they need to do in their age: saving, spending, sharing, and growing. While they are already familiar with the basics, Mr. Bengco encouraged them to get into activities that will help them make money.
Aside from the lecture, the students engaged in a series of funducational activities. The first was the Pera Game, where the students were made to guess the historical figures on the peso bills. They were rewarded the bill if they guessed it right.
The second activity involved the students writing down the amount of everything that they brought and have on during the session. They identified how much these are in order to know how much they are worth. At the end of the activity, Mr. Bengco emphasized that it’s not what they own that determines their self-worth, but who they are inside!
To close the session, the students were given Freedom Tags where they will draw or write down what they learned throughout the session. They hung these at the specified spots and enjoyed gazing at their wonderful works:
Overall, the entire event was a success. Mr. Bengco reminded all the students that the path to wealth is not impossible to achieve. Even a young person can already start walking to it in order to not just live one’s preferred lifestyle but to be a good influence to others!
