Join the Cherry Blossom Giving Circle and AAPIP-DC to celebrate the 2018 grantees of the Cherry Blossom Giving Circle. We'll come together to highlight the work they're doing to serve the AAPI community in the greater-DC area and network over delicious food catered by The Flipside, a new Filipino restaurant in downtown DC.
Our 2018 grantees will have an opportunity to talk about their work, and Cherry Blossom Giving members will share why they were drawn to their missions. Join us to learn more about how they're supporting the AAPI community in the DMV area and how you can get involved directly with them, the Giving Circle, or AAPIP-DC.
About the Organizers
The Cherry Blossom Giving Circle is a group of volunteers committed to creating positive change in the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities of the Washington, DC metro area. Representing diverse cultures, professional backgrounds, perspectives, and interests, we have pooled our resources to support AAPI‐serving nonprofits in the area. We promote positive change in the area’s underserved AAPI communities.
AAPIP-DC is the local chapter of Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy. AAPIP-DC serves as a resource to connect local grant makers and donors to AAPI nonprofits and issues in our local community. The Metro-DC's chapters goals are to:
Raise awareness in the field of philanthropy, among members, partner organizations and constituents within the region about critical issues facing our communities;
Expand and increase the impact of community philanthropy within the region by helping to grow and support local Giving Circles and;
Serve as a resource and a champion for the AAPI community.
