The BPCI, according to its website, is a non-stock, non-profit organization, while the pageant is BPCI's primary instrument “as it pursues its mission of spreading peace and love across the nation, (as it is) a fund-raising activity for projects that would benefit orphans, indigent families and other less fortunate members of Philippine society.” [1]
