Overview
Founded in 1990 and based in San Francisco, Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy (AAPIP) is a national membership and philanthropic advocacy organization dedicated to advancing philanthropy and Asian American/Pacific Islander communities. A grant to AAPIP would support its Civic Engagement fund, which supports organizations that serve Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim and South Asian communities through a combination of general operating support grants, technical assistance, and peer learning opportunities. With funding from the Packard, Irvine, and Hewlett foundations, the AAPIP will award six to eight of these organizations $75,000 each in general operating support. Additionally each grantee will undertake a capacity building project. To build trust and collaboration among grantees, AAPIP staff will conduct quarterly meetings to provide peer-to-peer learning opportunities and individualized technical assistance. Topics for the quarterly TA meetings will be based on the identified needs and desires of participating organizations, likely including community organizing, policy advocacy, and media and communications. (New, $141,615, 40% of project budget)
