Celebrating community philanthropy
Thanks to all the Cherry Blossom Giving Circle members, Rainbow Dragon Fund members, MASALA Giving Circle members, and guests who joined us at the happy hour on Monday to celebrate and promote community philanthropy!
At the happy hour, we officially launched our 2012 Request for Proposals. We are giving grants to organizations that serve AAPI communities in the Washington, DC metro area. In addition, this year, we are focusing on emerging organizations looking to expand their capacity and reach.
Members of the Rainbow Dragon Fund also reminded us that the deadline to apply for their grants is next Monday, July 16. They are giving grants for activities or projects that will benefit an LGBTQ AAPI individual, organization, or community in the Washington, DC metro area.
The MASALA Giving Circle is DC’s newest giving circle and will focus on the South Asian communities in the Washington, DC metro area.
