COVID-19 Recovery Fund

The enduring impact of COVID-19 has been devastating for the economic, physical and mental health of the Asian and Pacific Islander (API) community. Critical issues include:

  • RISE IN ANTI-ASIAN RACISM: The pandemic has contributed to a massive spike in anti-Asian hate incidents, attacks and discrimination. Read more about our focused efforts to address this here.
  • HIGHER FATALITY RATES: The fatality rate from COVID-19 for Asians is nearly triple that of all other ethnic groups in San Francisco.
  • LONGER UNEMPLOYMENT: Almost 50% of unemployed Asians have been out of work longer than any other ethnic group.
  • INCREASED BULLYING: 1 in 4 Asian American youths experience racist bullying.

In response to these needs, our final round of grantmaking for 2021 will be distributed through our COVID-19 Recovery Fund to nonprofits working on the ground to provide crucial support and services.

Please join our efforts and consider giving to our Recovery Fund today. For any questions, email development@asianpacificfund.org.
