Our mission is to increase the capacity and impact of Asian Pacific Islander philanthropic giving in the Sacramento region

APIs RISE Fund, comprised of API philanthropists and community leaders, aims to build and strengthen the next generation of API leadership for the Sacramento Region. By empowering APIs toward sustainable civic leadership, we are laying the foundation for a stronger tomorrow.

In the Sacramento region, the API population has been steadily growing. According to recent census data, over twenty percent of the Sacramento population identify as Asian and/or Pacific Islander. Yet, philanthropic giving and charitable donations have not evolved to reflect the growing population and its needs. The APIs RISE Fund responds to the disparities in funding to the API communities.

We will advance our mission by cultivating and securing resources and by engaging with locals to learn about the issues affecting our community.
