In collaboration with AAPIP-LA and Southern California Grantmakers, APCF co-sponsors an annual API Community Van Tour to outreach to foundation staff and grow awareness of the API community and the nonprofits serving this community. The half day tour may include an introduction to the history of APIs in the area, site visits to several nonprofits working in the underserved API communities, meetings with local elected officials, and an exploration of the cultural heritage of the area through food and other activities.
