Vinita and Naren Gupta - Vinita and Naren are active in Silicon Valley business, yet still make time to help the causes in their community that are important to them. They have supported the Asian Pacific Fund's Annual Campaign because they value the work the Fund is doing to help the community and to help others give back. They know the Fund has also provided advice, counseling and financial support to one of Vinita's favorite charities, Maitri of Sunnyvale, a program serving South Asian women.
We respect the diversity among Asian Americans and we strive to be responsive to the needs in each community. Although many of our donors support charities across a broad range of communities and needs, they often have personal priorities they want to address. Donors, through us, can learn about needs in Asian communities that they did not know existed. The Fund monitors issues in the Asian community and also receives professional advice in evaluating which programs and organizations to support.
