Established in 1990, the Asian Pacific Community Fund is a network of community organizations focused on transforming the lives of Asian and Pacific Islanders (APIs). Our mission is to meet the diverse needs of APIs by 1) building healthier communities, 2) developing leaders, 3) creating a stronger voice and 4) providing the foundation for a brighter tomorrow. We believe that thriving, strong and successful communities begin with individuals supporting one another. When people are healthy, housed, fed, educated and employed, we create the world we all want to live in.

The Asian Pacific Community Fund generates revenue through workplace giving programs as well as other avenues for its Affiliate Agencies which provide a wide range of health and human services to those in need throughout Los Angeles County and beyond. The Asian Pacific Community Fund provides a collaborative approach to raising funds for the broader API community, increases awareness of community needs as well as donor options and encourages active engagement in philanthropic activities.
