Together We Build is the heartbeat of our mission, mindset, and method.

To build a better future for AAPIs, we launched our portfolio strategy to invest in best in class nonprofit partners. We invite our donors to co-invest with us to harness our collective power to create greater belonging and prosperity for all.
TAAF invests in best in class nonprofit partners and builds high impact programs and events to achieve meaningful and lasting change.
This approach allows us to meet the moment to achieve unprecedented change.
A five-year portfolio strategy
In 2023, we launched a five-year portfolio strategy to catalyze resources and focus our efforts on four core initiatives: Anti-hate, Education, Narrative Change, Resources & Representation. Each initiative will include multi-year and one time grants as well as TAAF’s own high impact programmatic initiatives and events.
A community-based approach
Organizations and leaders have been working tirelessly to support AAPI communities, but they are under-funded and under-resourced. We’re providing support for those on the front lines of anti-hate, education, and narrative change to ensure they have the resources needed to deliver long-term systemic change.
Building Together
Since our founding, we have been proud to convene and connect stakeholders across sectors to align efforts, invest resources, and build power and representation for the AAPI community.
Here’s how our five-year portfolio strategy works:
We identify best in class nonprofit organizations
These key organizations span across each of TAAF's core initiatives.
Multiplier Effect
We invest in each initiative and invite donors to join us
We invite new and existing donors to co-invest with us to multiply funding and catalyze impact.
Funding + Capacity
We provide grants + capacity building to the nonprofits in each initiative
Organizations receiving multi-year grants will receive capacity building support through our partner Raise for Good. Others will receive one-year grants to deepen and sustain their impact.
Programs & Events
We design programs together
We build high impact programs and events to meet the evolving needs of our community.
