How We Started

Bert Lozada Foundation, Inc. (BLF) is the result of the focused consultative meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Bert Lozada Swim School, a swim school registered under the Security and Exchange Commission as the legacy of the late Mr. REMBERTO CASIMIRO LOZADA.

BLF was officially launched last September 14, 2016, during the 60th Founding Anniversary celebration of the Bert Lozada Swim School.

This initiative is part of the Bert Lozada Swim School’s corporate social responsibility effort to give back to the community, particularly to the underprivileged children, youth and families located therein. Our pursuit of a drown-free nation by teaching swimming and lifesaving skills is aimed to SAVE LIVES. Lastly, we hope to BUILD OPPORTUNITIES by providing sponsorship and scholarship grants to deserving and talented swimmers amongst those we train.
