Join the Asian Pacific Community Fund, The California Wellness Foundation, Cause, Asian American/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy (AAPIP), AAPI Data and SCG for a fascinating webinar and virtual discussion on the State of the Nonprofit Sector Survey and results for AAPI nonprofits in California.

Presented by the Nonprofit Finance Fund, this webinar will explore some of the unique characteristics and experiences of AAPI-serving organizations in California taken from a sample size of about 3,400 respondents across all 50 states.

Join us to dig into the data and explore how it can be used to leverage conversations for change. This presentation will highlight survey results, including:

  • AAPI nonprofits face similar challenges to other nonprofits across the country, including concern for the people they serve, rising demand and funding challenges
  • Some challenges hit AAPI nonprofits harder, such as leadership staffing and the impact of federal positions and policies
  • AAPI nonprofits are also thriving with more diversity in organizational leadership and opportunities to collaborate and grow


Following the data presentation, the Executive Director of the Asian Pacific Policy & Planning Council (A3PCON) and former Executive Director of the South Asian Network (SAN), Manjusha Kulkarni, will provide a response from the nonprofit perspective.
