What is INLIFE for Good?

Insular Life is Inlife!

To be Inlife is to be inspired. To be inspired means to be able to enjoy the present while taking charge for what tomorrow may bring.

2017 we celebrated our 107th anniversary, where we officially introduced our newest corporate tagline – Inlife for Good.

Inlife for good is more than a tagline. It is a mirror of what we stand for and what we do as an organization.

As we reflect on our role in the community, these past one hundred years of service have given us the perspective to look through our core and find that our business – that of securing lives, providing peace of mind and security to families over generations -- is inherently good for policyholders, the community, and our country.

We have always shared the bounty of our blessings, the joys of our success and the prosperity of our business to efforts that uplift the individual, the community and the nation, for the common good, for the higher good.

We recognize too, that as a Filipino company, we are here to stay; we are here to journey with our people no matter the circumstances, no matter the challenges, no matter the obstacles. We are here for good.

Insular Life, indeed, is Inlife for Good!

Inlife Background

2017 CSR Report

Sharing INLIFE
with the Filipino

Insular Life is at the forefront of the industry as a leading provider of financial products to the Filipinos.

Moreover, our operation is also marked by the impact it has created on the lives of our countrymen through the various initiatives we have instituted in our corporate social responsibility programs.

We believe that doing well in business – as we have been – and creating a deeper effect in the communities that we serve go hand-in-hand and a complimentary activity of a truly successful organization.

Even as we continue to find ways to serve our people through our products and services, we have also strengthened our services through the Insular Foundation and our army of employee volunteers.

CSR Highlights – Insular Foundation

In 2017, we are proud to report that the Philippine Council for NGO Certification (PCNC) has granted Insular Foundation with the “donee” status.

To be recognized as a donee by the PCNC is an affirmation of our organization’s good governance in managing and administering our various activities, particularly the Foundation’s flagship programs such as scholarship grants to poor but highly deserving students.

Gold Eagle College Scholarship Grant

This year, we resumed giving out Gold Eagle medals to 500 valedictorians of partner high schools. Recipients of the medals are eligible to vie for a slot to the Gold Eagle College Scholarship Grant.

Every year, the Foundation allots 10 new scholarship grants for students enrolled in the College of Education and two grants for students enrolled in the College of Mathematics at the University of the Philippines – Diliman (UPD) Campus.

Aside from UPD scholars, another three scholars from the five other State Universities in the provinces are given college scholarship grants for their students taking up education courses.

This scholarship grant covers tuition, miscellaneous fee, book allowance, board and lodging and stipend. Through this scholarship, the Foundation aims to encourage academically gifted individuals to pursue a teaching profession so that they can help improve the quality of education for the next generation of Filipinos.

Disaster-proof School Buildings

It’s not just the pupils who get a much needed help from InLife.  

Through the Foundation’s “Adopt-A- School Program”, two one-storey disaster resilient school buildings with three classrooms each were constructed and donated for the students of San Jose Central School and San Jose Technical High School in San Jose, Northern Samar.

Employee volunteers lend a hand to plant trees in Rizal province, during the World Bamboo Day.

These school buildings were the first disaster-resilient classrooms to be built in one of the poorest municipalities in the province of Northern Samar.  

Adopt-A-School is InLife’s response to the government’s call for help from the private sector to assist solve the backlog in the construction of public school buildings particularly in poverty-stricken provinces.  

Storybooks, Workshops

The Foundation’s work does not stop at students and pupils, or the physical construction of school buildings. Our work includes the strengthening of the foundation of our teachers’ pedagogical abilities, by conducting workshops specific to their needs.

This year, thirty-six public school teachers in San Jose Elementary School and San Fernando Central Elementary School in Tacloban City benefitted from the storytelling workshop sponsored by the Foundation.

At the end of the workshop, the teachers received 1,800 pieces of Insular storybooks for them to use in their classes. The workshop is a follow-up activity of the Foundation two years after the donation of the classroom building in San Jose Elementary School.

The Foundation also reached out to Epifanio Delos Santos Elementary School for the donation of 200 pieces of Insular storybooks as a response to their school’s appeal for help in sourcing out good books for their library. The storybooks benefitted 1,500 Grade 1 to Grade 3 children from depressed areas in Manila.

Modern Instructional Materials

Following the successful launch of the Estudyantipid Episode 1 in 2016, the Foundation signed another agreement with the Knowledge Channel Foundation.

This agreement was for the production of the two episodes of financial literacy video episodes which will be used by public school teachers nationwide in teaching Grade 9, Araling Panlipunan subject, was bankrolled by a ₱1 million grant from the Foundation.

The two episodes will talk about savings, consumption and how to be a wise saver.

Through these efforts, we hope to realize a strong Philippines by producing graduates who are knowledgeable, by engaging teachers who are inspired and competent, and by ensuring that the student’s learning environment is safe and secure.

Response to the Marawi Crisis

Aside from the tangible accomplishments in our advocacy on education, special efforts were likewise extended by the Company to bring relief to the Marawi City crisis. In fact, InLife and its employee volunteers were among the very first in the private sector to mobilize and to come to aid those affected by the crisis in  Marawi.

Adopt-A-Marawi Soldier Fund Drive

Insular Foundation donated 817 sets of hygiene kits to the Civil Military Operations Group (CMOG) of the Philippine Army for the use of the soldiers fighting the war in Marawi City.  A total of ₱407,000.00 worth of out-of-pocket cash donations was generated from 128 Insular officers and employees through the Adopt-A-Soldier Fund Drive, launched by the Foundation.

Visit to the Marawi Soldiers

Forty-five Insular volunteers and Gawad Kalinga kids of GK Marcelo Village in Manggahan, Paranaque City visited Manila Naval Hospital in September at the Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City to give cheers and uplift the morale of the wounded soldiers confined at the hospital.

Employee Volunteerism

Adopt-A-Scholar Program

While the Company is at the forefront of social responsibility, its employees, too, are in tune with the needs of others.

This is because our own employees themselves are empowered by InLife to share their blessings with those in need – especially elementary pupils through the company’s “Adopt-A-Scholar Program” and other volunteer projects – either in the realm of education or other worthy causes such as environment preservation and healthcare.

Moreover, “Adopt-A-Scholar” is a direct materials assistance provided by employees to Grades 1-6 pupils of InLife’s partner schools.

Under this program, employees of Inlife provide much needed school supplies to government school pupils to ensure that they have the necessary materials for their studies. The lack of school materials is one of the many cited causes of dropouts among very poor pupils.

In 2017, 76 scholars finished Grade 6 at Muntinlupa Itaas Elementary School-Main. The Foundation feted them to a graduation salu-salo together with their Adopt Insular employee sponsors. The subsequent batch of the Adopt-A-Scholar Program for the School Year 2017-2018 was also launched wherein 140 Grade 1 pupils were adopted by 72 employees as their scholars.

Values formation classes at GK

A big part of InLife’s program is the cultivation of a strong, self-less employee, by supporting employee volunteers who render acts of service.   

Thus, every third Saturday of the month, InLife employee volunteers extend their time and talents to the Gawad Kalinga kids at the Marcelo Village in Paranaque City to teach them value formation activities.

There are 65 GK youngsters, ages 6-12, who belong to the group called “Sagip Kids” that benefit from the values education sessions planned and conducted by 37 Insular active volunteers.

Aside from the monthly meetings in the GK Activity Center, our employee volunteers also joined other such activities as the World Bamboo Day, Red Cross Million Volunteer Run and Christmas Party at the Pediatrics Cancer Ward of the Philippine General Hospital.
