The Asian American Impact Fund is a giving circle that is part of the Asian American Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy (AAPIP) national network.
Our mission is to improve the lives of under-resourced Asian American/Pacific Islanders in the tri-state area. We do this by providing financial and strategic advisory support to small and emerging organizations that are experimenting with innovative approaches to solving some of our community’s greatest challenges. We believe in taking risks on untested projects that have a direct impact today and the potential to achieve sustainable impact over time.
We provide general operating support grants of $5-10K to small and emerging organizations that are experimenting with innovative approaches to solving the API’s community’s greatest challenges.
