The López family of Iloilo are a wealthy and influential dynasty of business owners, politicians, and philanthropists in the Philippines. They trace their origins to Basilio López, a trader who became district mayor of Jaro, Iloilo City, in 1849. Prominent members of the family include Fernando López, who served three terms as Vice-President of the Philippines and, with his brother Eugenio, founded the college which became the University of Iloilo.

Most of the family's current business interests are represented in the Lopez Group of Companies, which includes the broadcasting giant ABS-CBN (chairman Eugenio Lopez III).
