The Fund helps donors learn about the needs in the community and discusses their ideas to reach their goals.
The Asian Pacific Fund serves individuals, families, and their professional advisors by providing meaningful and effective ways to give back. Most donors look to the Fund for help because they are interested in the Bay Area Asian community. Some are long-time supporters of one or two agencies and are looking for ways to have a broader or longer-term impact. Some want to give and remain anonymous. We are also happy to assist donors who have broader interests outside the Asian community and simply like working through an Asian organization.
In general, we are not involved in international programs. The Fund has received corporate and foundation support, often for special projects.
The Asian Pacific Fund offers many options to help others while fulfilling each donor’s personal goals and priorities. Several giving options are described in this section and each offers tax benefits. Some options affect the use of the funds while others are more an expression of the donor’s purpose, regardless of the use. If you have questions or an idea you would like to discuss, please call (415) 433-6859, or e-mail us.
