Asian American Community Fund Grant Awards

The Federation is pleased to announce its 2009 Asian American Community Fund grant awards. A majority of this year's grant making was made possible by a matching grant that we completed at the end of 2009. The Cultures of Giving Fund, established at Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation afforded the Federation's opportunity to empower emerging donor communities and focus on educating & cultivating donors of color within local communities by promoting individual giving, developing their personal philanthropy & engaging further in community causes. Having raised $275,000 over 2 years, the Cultures of Giving Fund matched our efforts dollar for dollar.

Since its inception in 1993, the Federation's Community Fund has been instrumental in meeting the emerging and evolving needs of Asian community organizations and members.

This round of grants will award $190,000 to 25 agencies for diverse programs supporting Asian American nonprofits that include: advancing child welfare, sustaining classes for low-income immigrants, and agency capacity building projects. The remaining grants will be awarded in the next coming months.

Sincere thanks to the Community Fund's Allocations Committee.
Congratulations 2009 grantees!
