AAPIP and Jade Philanthropy Society Event
The DC chapter of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy (AAPIP) and the Jade Philanthropy Society hosted a joint event on October 17 to learn more about the needs in the underserved Asian American populations in the metro DC area.
We listened to a great panel discussion on how philanthropy both individually and collectively can make a difference to uplift those who are less fortunate. The panel was moderated by our own Andy Ho, who is the manager of global philanthropy at the Council on Foundations and a consultant with AAPIP, and the panel members were:
- Angela Jones Hackley, Vice President, Community Investment, Community Foundation for the National Capital Region
- Rosetta Lai, Former Executive Director, Asian American LEAD
- Loan Hanlon, Branch Manager, Boat People SOS
- Dory Peters, Special Assistant, Office on Asian and Pacific Islander Affairs, DC Mayor’s Office
