Philippine Charity Office

Senator Panfilo Lacson (2nd from left), chair of the Senate Committee on Games and Amusement, presides over a Senate hearing Tuesday, August 15, 2017, looking into the creation of the Philippine Charity Office (PCO), which will replace the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO). “The provisions in this bill allow the PCSO charter to adapt to the changing system of and emerging variations of lotteries and similar activities. The bill also seeks to strengthen the charter by making the PCSO more accountable to the public, and limiting its discretion in the distribution of its funds,” Lacson said.
