“Everytime we get to help someone,it’s the best feeling in the world.”

Wilmer Guido (1992 - 2017), Founder

Our Story

The PARC Foundation was established as a non-stock, non-profit organization in December 2015. It was founded by Wilmer Guido, a passionate 23-year old whose dream was to put up a performing arts center to help people, especially the underprivileged youth and struggling local artists, fulfill their passions as well.

Determined to achieve his dream, Wilmer formed his core team with like-minded friends Samsam Santiago and Issay Nodalo. As a first move, they repurposed an old office building into a performing arts hub. On June 1, 2016, they officially opened their doors to the public. Since then, The PARC Foundation has been a second home to numerous performing artists and groups who enjoy our creative spaces at the friendliest rates.

In response to the stigma that the performing arts is only for well-off individuals, the foundation launched PARCaralan in December 2017. The aim of the program is to bring free quality arts education to some of the most talented and promising children from underserved communities near PARC.

Unfortunately, it was during the same month when PARC lost its founder due to a sudden illness. But with the support of his family and the Guido Group of Companies, Wilmer’s spirit lives on and his legacy continues through The PARC Foundation and its mission to enable and support the Filipino performing arts community.
