LA API Giving Circle, CA


The Los Angeles Asian Pacific Islander Giving Circle supports small Asian American Pacific Islander organizations/projects in L.A. County engaged in innovative, risk-taking that may not be supported by traditional avenues of support. 

Our goals are:

  • To invest in community-based organizations engaged in social change work that serves AAPI communities in Los Angeles County.
  • To educate its donors/members about the power of collective philanthropy.
  • To expand philanthropy and increase giving by local AAPIs.
  • To broaden its donors/members awareness of issues affecting AAPIs in the Los Angeles County region and the organizations that are engaged in these issues.
