What We Do
We strive to impact and uplift Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities in the Bay Area through the following initiatives:
- We provide grants and services that strengthen community organizations working to improve the lives of the most vulnerable APIs. Our network of over 90 affiliate organizations serves AAPIs across a wide range of needs, including senior and youth services, health and well-being, counseling, legal services, advocacy, civic engagement, and arts and culture.
- We coordinate scholarship programs on behalf of individual donors that provide financial support to undergraduate and graduate students.
- We cultivate leadership by recognizing AAPI leaders who have succeeded and are role models for giving back and making a difference in higher education and philanthropy.
“The Fund connects the hearts of individuals with the needs of the most disenfranchised groups in the Asian community. Organizations that can connect these two critical dots are rare. The Fund’s insight into community needs and philanthropists’ desires, and their commitment to nonprofits, has been essential to our success.”
