The U.S. Embassy Club (USEC) is seeking applications to offer financial grants to local organizations dedicated to improving the lives of women and children.

USEC primary focus is to assist organizations in the metro Manila area with small-scale projects in the areas of health, education, livelihood, and the environment.

The United States Embassy Club is a charitable giving and volunteer organization made up of U.S. Embassy Manila employees and their family members. USEC began more than 45 years ago and has evolved into a volunteer club dedicated to improving the lives of women and children in the Philippines.
