We invite you to participate in AAPIP’s upcoming webinar, Seeking to Soar: A Call for Collective Action.
The recent anti-Asian attacks are the latest in the U.S.’s long history of white supremacy, systemic racism, and gendered violence. In the midst of heightened violence, AAPIP released both a new report on foundation funding for AAPI communities, Seeking to Soar, and a Call for Solidarity and Collective Action: Asian American Philanthropy Letter of Intention. The report revealed that foundation funding designated to AAPI communities makes up just 0.20% of total grantmaking dollars; in other words, AAPI communities receive 20 cents per $100 awarded by foundations. With over 700 philanthropic professionals and allies signing AAPIP’s Call for Solidarity and Collective Action, AAPIP seeks to mobilize the philanthropic sector to develop sustained strategies for expanded support of AAPIs and all historically underserved communities of color in service of an inclusive democracy.
Seeking to Soar: A Call for Collective Action will include:
+ A closer look at AAPIP’s new report, Seeking to Soar: Foundation Funding for AAPI Communities, highlighting key findings and recommendations
+ A CEO-level panel discussion on how philanthropy can support AAPI communities for the long-term featuring:
Aleyamma Mathew, Executive Director, Collective Future Fund
James Head, President & CEO, East Bay Community Foundation
Mariko Silver, President & CEO, Henry Luce Foundation
We will be reserving seats for this webinar for professionals in grantmaking institutions or philanthropy-serving organizations only.
