About Us


The Foundation

The Foundation was duly registered at the Securities and Exchange Commission on 26 May 1999 as a non-Government, non-stock and non-profit organization.

The Foundation was formed out of a strong desire to preserve the Nakpil heritage, its role in shaping national history.  In 2009 the direct descendants of Julio Nakpil and Gregoria de Jesus reviewed the vision statement, and the mission statement was amended to clearly state the Foundation’s direction and goals.


Our Vision

Bahay Nakpil-Bautista will flourish as a recognized architectural masterpiece, a nationally significant historical site, a center for community activities and urban revitalization, a forum for nation-building, and a platform for projecting Filipino art and culture locally and internationally.
