Support the Asian Pacific Fund this Giving Tuesday

Founded in 1993, the Asian Pacific Fund is the only community foundation dedicated to improving the lives of underserved and marginalized Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) in the Bay Area. We do this by:

  • Strengthening our Safety Net: We fund and support an ecosystem of more than 90 Bay Area nonprofits serving AAPI seniors, youth, and families, 40% of which have budgets of less than $1 million.
  • Mobilizing Philanthropy: We connect philanthropy to AAPI-serving nonprofits, mobilizing funding, regionally and nationally, to increase our collective impact.
  • Driving Change: We are informed by the voices in our community and lead by speaking out, convening thought leaders, and amplifying solutions that work.
