In the next 25 years, one in five Americans will be Asian American or Pacific Islander.  AAPIs are the largest segment of new immigrants coming to the United States.  More and more are coming out as LGBTQ, yet philanthropy struggles to address the emerging needs of this fast growing community with myriad needs and unique assets. LGBTQ AAPI communities received less than $1.2 million in funding in 2016, and has never received more than $2 million annually.

Join a learning community for donors and grant-makers to learn about the state of philanthropic support for LGBTQ AAPI communities, featuring the latest data. Hear from a panel of funders about their key investments in LGBTQ AAPI communities at the local, state, and national levels. Discover impactful grant-making practices through an equity lens.  Leave with a better understanding of the LGBTQ AAPI movement and current funding trends, gaps, and opportunities. 

Brunch to be provided.

The panel discussion is strategically scheduled at the same place and during NQAPIA’s national conference of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Asian American, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Pacific Islander (AAPI) leaders and activists at the Hilton Chinatown in San Francisco on July 26-29, 2018.
