Gold Futures Challenge

Asian American Futures and Gold House are proud to launch the 2022 Gold Futures Challenge, an exciting, online model for philanthropy that will award ten prizes ranging from $25,000 to $100,000 to Asian American and Pacific Islander (“AAPI”) organizations for projects that ensure our communities are Seen, Heard, Empowered, and United.

For too long, grantmaking has been elitist and top-down, and has largely ignored the needs of the AAPI community. The Gold Futures Challenge is a first-of-its-kind idea: we’re using an online funding and voting model not only to democratize our grant-making, but also to bring visibility to AAPI-serving organizations among a new audience, new donors, new volunteers, and new potential partners. In doing so, we also hope to build unity among AAPI communities across the country.
