MEET THE FUNDERS
Since 2016, APCF has collaborated with AAPIP-LA (Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy – Los Angeles) to provide “Meet the Funders” events to help connect API nonprofits with new funding sources. Offered twice a year, APCF facilitates a panel of several funders to discuss their organization’s funding priorities, eligibility criteria, do’s and don’ts of applying, and other insights that demystify the funding process. After the panel, there is also an invaluable opportunity for API nonprofits to have a one-on-one session with the funder. These sessions help facilitate relationship building between the two sectors, allowing for the nonprofit to ask very specific questions while the funder gets to know the nonprofit better.
