GOLDEN ABC various supported organizations and foundations in over two decades. As the company grows into the fashion retail giant that it is today, it is now able to support more causes and help out in different aspects of the community.

GABC has four advocacies it supports which have to do with Education, Environment, Community building and Arts & Culture. For more detailed information of the four advocacies GABC gives us the definition for each:

Get Up for Education

The company has always believed that it is important to develop a new generation of leaders that will lead society to a brighter tomorrow. This will be difficult to do when access to the most basic right to education is limited, or at worst, non-existent. GABC partners with organizations that work at making sure that this does not happen anymore.

Get Up for the Environment

We all live under the same canopy of stars and clouds. We all breathe the same air. We are all nourished by the same source of nature. Earth is our only home, and it is everyone's mission to take good care of it. It is GABC's mission to do its part.

Get Up for Community Building

GABC understands that its community goes beyond the walls of its offices and stores. We are part of a bigger community that relies on each other to create a society that we can all be proud to live in. Our interdependence dictates our responsibility to take care of each other as much as the community has allowed us to flourish in our business these many years. GABC partners with organizations that help uplift human dignity and equip them to be productive members of the community.

Get Up for Arts and Culture

Over the years, GABC has been blessed to have a team of individuals with a pioneering spirit who have complemented the visionary leadership of its management group. We believe that innovation is a major key to any success; and that creativity is what fuels innovation. Creativity creates new jobs, new ideas, new opportunities. Creativity enriches lives, but it cannot be taught; however, it can be nurtured and cultivated through exposure to arts & culture.
