For Generations to Come: Chinese American Philanthropy in the Bay Area

Publication date: 
March, 2015

NCG members the Chinese American Community Foundation and Silicon Valley Community Foundation partnered to publish this report to better understand and celebrate the Chinese American community in the Bay Area, including the many contributions made to the Bay Area.

While philanthropic engagement, among Chinese Americans studied, both in the U.S. and overseas, less is known about philanthropists in the San Francisco Bay Area, especially with respect to the newly involved. This report describes the findings of a study conducted with Chinese American donors living in the San Francisco Bay Area. The information was collected through in-depth interviews, and, following a brief overview of the community today, will be largely presented in the participants’ own words.
