AAANA - Who we are

Creation of the AAANA

AAANA was created during the 2010 All Ateneo Alumni Convention in Anaheim, CA. It became operational after its newly drafted Constitution and By-Laws were ratified and the first national officers were elected by the attendees in the 2012 Las Vegas All Ateneo Alumni Convention. This was made possible by the partnership with the Ateneans of Las Vegas.

The 2014 All Ateneo Alumni Convention in New York City, the second under the auspices of AAANA, was held in partnership with the Ateneo of North America - North East, Inc. Moving forward, AAANA shall provice support and guidance to future All Ateneo Conventions and shall establish standard and continuity from one convention to another.

Conceived as a national organization, AAANA shall represent the various Ateneo Alumni Associations in North America. The goals of AAANA are as follows:

  • To foster mutual cooperation and collaboration among Ateneo alumni organizations;
  • To promote and protect the legitimate interests of all Ateneans;
  • To encourage participation and at-large membership involvement  of Ateneans  at  all levels of the organization in any appropriate educational, spiritual, cultural, civic and charitable projects;
  • To undertake projects that will improve the economic, civic, social and spiritual well-being of its members;
  • To be the catalyst in the pursuit of the goals and objectives of Ateneo Alumni Associations; 
  • To serve as the communication center of the Ateneo Alumni Associations in North America and all the Jesuit universities and schools in the Philippines.

AAANA was created during the 2010 Ateneo Convention in Anaheim, CA. It became operative after its newly drafted Constitution & By-Laws were ratified and the first national officers were elected by the attendees in the 2012 Las Vegas convention. This was the first convention held under the auspices of AAANA – made possible by partnership with the Ateneans of Las Vegas.

The 2014 All Ateneo Convention, the second under the auspices of ¬∑AAANA, was held in partnership with the Ateneo  of  North America - North East, Inc. Moving forward,  AAANA shall provide support and guidance to future  All Ateneo Conventions and shall establish standard and continuity from one convention to another.

Living the Ignatian spirit

Giving back to the Jesuits

We are pleased to announce that with the collective generosity and support of our alumni members and donors in North America and the Philippines, we reached our goal of raising $250,000.00 in June 2016. This was the amount necessary to meet the $250,000.00 fund match challenge made by our brother Atenean, venture capitalist and philanthropist Dado Banatao during the 2012 Las Vegas All Ateneo Convention. The $500,000.00 will go to an endowment fund for the benefit of and in gratitude to our elderly and infirm Jesuit mentors. We thank Dado and everyone who supported our first major fund raising project.

Growing as an organization

The AAANA has gone through its early stage of development as an organization - busy laying down its foundations, identifying and enlisting the support of the various AAAs, helping alumni to organize into local AAAs, informing Ateneans about AAANA, and developing its website to enable and facilitate communication between AAANA and the alumni. It has also received 501(c)3 tax exempt status from the IRS which makes it easier for donors to contribute to our fund raising activities. With biennial conventions as catalyst, AAANA continues to undergo its next critical stages of organizational and leadership development as well as membership expansion.
