The PaniqueniansUSA, Inc. is a California public benefit corporation, non-profit, tax exempt under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Service. Most charity projects of the association are focused in the town of Paniqui, Tarlac, Philippines where members of this association originally came from. The scholarship program for the economically disadvantaged but deserving students started 18 years ago and has benefited 26 college graduates. At the present time, there are 37 students receiving scholarships from the association. These students have to maintain a certain grade average in order to remain in the program. Missions like medical optical and dental, operation "2le", used clothes and food for the needy were sponsored by the PaniqueniansUSA, Inc. Deep wells were constructed in all of the town’s 35 elementary schools so that children will have clean drinking water. Net revenues generated from the annual fiesta fund raising campaign are used to fund these projects.
