Asian American and Pacific Islander Organizations Participate in Giving Tuesday


Today is the third annual #GivingTuesday! See below for all the great work NCAPA organizations are doing for our communities and how you can #giveAPA.

NCAPA organizations

Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum (APIAHF)

APIAHF influences policy, mobilizes communities, and strengthens programs and organizations to improve the health of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders.

Asian & Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund (APIASF)

APIASF works to create opportunities for students to access, complete, and succeed after post-secondary education. By making a donation - no matter the amount - you are helping to develop future leaders who will excel in their career, serve as role models in their communities, and will ultimately contribute to a vibrant America.

Asian & Pacific Islander American Vote (APIAVote)

Our plan at APIAVote is to ensure that the potential impact becomes a reality. Our plan starts with the youth: to educate their communities, to register voters, to get out the vote—to make the key difference. Their passion and commitment will make sure that the AAPI vote is heard, seen, and felt in November and beyond. Your donation to APIAVote today on #GivingTuesday will help empower our youth to lead a movement of potential political impact to real results on Election Day.

Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC (AAJC)

Join us by making a gift that will help us do more for our communities. With your help, we can: 

Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies (APAICS)

Your support helps to build leaders across the country making sure our community is represented at all levels of our government. No contribution is too small to help build the political pipeline for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. 

Asian Pacific Partners for Empowerment, Advocacy & Leadership (APPEAL)

Over the past 15 years, APPEAL has come to rely on the generous support of our partners, Network members, communities and friends in order to continue our efforts for health justice and parity. These donations make each of our activities – whether it’s leadership training, capacity building, technical assistance and training, or advocacy and policy – not only a possibility, but an asset for the communities we serve. By donating to APPEAL, you will contribute to this work, and towards a healthy and tobacco-free Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander community.

Center for Asian American Media (CAAM)

As we continue to grow and evolve, the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) remains at the forefront, committed to connecting our communities and providing the platforms, tools and resources for Asian Americans to share their stories with the world.  By supporting and encouraging our communities to express and share their lived experiences, stories and ideas, we are helping to build a more inclusive society that understands and values diversity. 

Japanese American Citizens League (JACL)

Your thoughtful investment will allow the JACL to continue preserving the legacy of the Japanese American community and fighting for the civil rights of all people. 

Leadership Education for Asian Pacifics, Inc. (LEAP)

A contribution to LEAP today can provide an emerging nonprofit leader with the opportunity to gain valuable leadership development, personal coaching and peer support. No matter the amount, you can help give an Asian or Pacific Islander college student a memorable and hands-on internship experience and leadership training that will lay the foundation for future success. Your donation will provide a chance and opportunity for any Asian or Pacific Islander to develop new skills, fine tune their strengths and solidify confidence in their abilities to be a leader in both the Asian and Pacific Islander communities as well in the broader society.

National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum (NAPAWF)

  • After 19 years, NAPAWF remains the ONE and ONLY multi-issue organization that is focused on building a movement to advance social justice and human rights for AAPI women and girls in the United States.
  • This year alone, we stopped 17 efforts to introduce racist abortion bans in local states and in the U.S. Senate. One of our proudest moments was defeating it in the deep southern state of Louisiana.
  • Our Young Women's Collaborative builds leadership and advocacy in young AAPI women and girls. We help these budding activists develop and lead community-based research, and organize campaigns around women's sexual health issues. This September marked the start of the 12th cohort of this program!

National Asian Pacific Center on Aging (NAPCA)

Your support enables us to improve the quality of life of Asian American and Pacific Islander elders ... Your gift in any amount helps us in our mission to serve as the nation’s leading advocacy and service organization committed to the dignity, well-being, and quality of life of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders as they age.
