History

The AAPI Civic Engagement Fund was conceived in 2013 by a group of pioneering donors in response to the under-investment and disenfranchisement of AAPI communities. We seek to counter past philanthropic giving to communities of color which have been episodic, chaotic, and small. We are the first of our kind to scale grassroots efforts and construct lasting and durable movement infrastructure for AAPI communities.
