The annual campaign supports our grants, training and public information programs and the services we provide to donors who seek advice on the best ways to make their charitable contributions.
Each campaign focuses on one or two issues, and we distribute grants to local Asian organizations who are addressing that issue. In addition, we supplement grants with public information programs, training for agencies and other projects.
In addition, at our annual galas we honor individuals for professional accomplishment, leadership and philanthropic contributions. We present the honoree’s personal story of childhood experiences, the path to achieving success and why he or she chose to give back. Please click below to view the presentations.
