Ms. Carol Larson and Mr. Gara LaMarche will lead off the Summit program which will include remarks from Danielle M. Reyes, Chair of the Board of Directors for AAPIP and Program Officer, Eugene and Agnes E. Meyer Foundation, as well as from Peggy Saika, President/Executive Director of AAPIP.
We’re happy to have one of our newest Board Members, Jeanie Lee Boehmler, share her observations on the recent community reception and program at The Renwick Gallery, “What is the Role of Philanthropy and Government in Times of Crisis?“
On July 16 and 17, AAPIP hosted a National Giving Circle Strategy Session at our new offices in San Francisco, bringing together key leadership from established, new and emerging giving circles across the country.
AAPIP would like to thank all the participants at our recent session at the Here and Now Symposium in Washington DC. We are excited by the level of engagement and dialogue sparked by our presentation, “Growing Opportunities, Enduring Challenges: Data, Trends and Progress in Philanthropic Investment to AAPI Communities”.
AAPIP is looking forward to our next AAPIP 2010 next week in Washington DC at the Art of Gaman exhibit. Delphine Hirasuna, the author and guest curator of the Art of Gaman, will be present for a book signing and to lead a private tour of the artifacts for our guests.
AAPIP’s upcoming community reception, program and private viewing of The Art of Gaman Arts and Crafts from the Japanese American Internment Camps, 1942-1946 will serve as a framework to draw on the experiences of Japanese Americans interned during World War II and Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim and South Asian (AMEMSA) communities in post–9/11 America.
