Moments of the day with the Minnesota NGEC fellowship organization’s kept poking at me. So when Peggy Saika shared that it is racism within philanthropy that led to the creation of AAPIP (Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy), and while AAPIP never intended to be and is not a “funder” it seized the opportunity to create the space for the National Gender & Equity Campaign of which the OFP is a component.
This is the Part 2 recording of the Live Webcast filmed on April 10, 2011 at the AAPIP Annual Membership Meeting and Community Program in Philadelphia.
This video covers the panel discussion with guests from Philadelphia area foundations and giving circles.
AAPIP would like to take this opportunity to thank Danielle M. Reyes, our outgoing AAPIP Board Chairperson for her years of service. We know she’ll continue to play an integral role through the AAPIP Metro D.C. Chapter and the Cherry Blossom Giving Circle (both of which she was a founder). Check out the link below to the guest blog she wrote for Philanthropy411 that highlighted yesterday’s AAPIP Annual Membership Meeting in Philadelphia and describes AAPIP’s vision for “Building Democratic Philanthropy”

We’re pleased to have a fresh voice on our blog with a post from Joshua Fisher, AAPIP Administrative & Program Support, about his experience and insights from the AAPI Boys and Young Men of Color convening held in December 2010.
