InterAksyon.com reports that on Wednesday, October 10, tycoon Manuel V. Pangilinan-chairman of the PLDT group of companies-announced that he was making a ₱5 million contribution to the University of the Philippines, via the Alpha Sigma Fraternity, "as an expression of my commitment to the future of UP." Pangilinan made the annoucement during the 50th anniversary of UP's Alpha Sigma fraternity at the Makati Shangri-la Hotel. According to the report, Pangilinan referred to UP as "one of the Philippines’ best investments in terms of ’value for money.’"

 

The report noted: "[Up until September this year], Pangilinan was most identified with San Beda College, his alma mater, and the Ateneo de Manila University, from which he resigned as board chairman last year. Pangilinan signaled a ’complete disengagement’ from Ateneo after citing ’irreconcilable differences’ with the Jesuit university, particularly over debates revolving around mining and reproductive health."
