Join Us & Donate

Donate Now

We are always seeking new volunteers, members, donors, and grant recipients. Our fund is volunteer operated, so no funds are used for administrative purposes, just grantmaking. Volunteers donate their time, professional/business services, and supplies to the organization. Our network of volunteers manage everything from marketing, outreach, and administrative operations, to website and IT, nonprofit development, and more.

Donate any amount to become a member of our “giver’s circle”. If you donate $250 or more, you are eligible to vote on the selection committee that selects our grantee(s) for the year. All donations are tax deductible. Choose “Cherry Blossom Giving Circle” on the Greater Washington Community Foundation donation website.

Members may also be sustaining donors, making monthly or quarterly payments equal to or exceeding $250. Contact us to set up your giving profile if you wish to be a sustaining donor.


Why Join?

Joining the giving circle gives you a unique opportunity to develop skills and to become more connected by:

  • Meeting and working with other members who care about our communities
  • Learning about local AAPI organizations and issues
  • Selecting grantees in a formal charitable giving process

Your contribution and involvement will make a significant impact! Since we started the giving circle in 2009, we have provided a total of almost $90,000 in grants to the following nonprofit organizations in 2010, 2011, 2012, 20132014, 201520162017, and 2018.
