$20,000 Goal

In the Sacramento region, Asian and Pacific Islanders, according to recent Census data, are over 20% of the Sacramento population.  However, philanthropic giving and nonprofit donations have not evolved to reflect the growing population.  APIs RISE Giving Circle has developed a collective strategy to accelerate API philanthropy in Sacramento and create a more truly API way to give back to our community.


The mission of APIs RISE is to increase the capacity and impact of Asian Pacific Islander philanthropic giving in the Sacramento Region and to build and strengthen the next generation of API leadership.


Refreshments and supplies at organizational events.

Domain name, creation/upkeep of website and Facebook page, regular communications among APIs RISE members and leadership via email (email blasts) and upkeep of donor and contact lists.

Community volunteers to plan and staff organizational events, e.g., Annual Noodle Bowl Trivia competition, panel discussions (e.g., March 2019 - Census panel), cultural events (e.g., April 2019 - Capital Stage Vietgone fundraiser)

Equity Statement

Through community-based philanthropy, community convenings, and cultural events and education, APIs Rise Fund will support AAPIs and all communities of color to achieve equity and racial justice in philanthropy and promote the leadership, engagement, and empowerment that equitable philanthropy creates.
