Asian Women Giving Circle

We are an all-volunteer group of Asian American women in New York City who are passionate about amplifying the transformative power of arts and culture to advance an equitable and just society. We pool our resources to fund projects led by Asian American women artists and community groups. We take risks by investing in emerging and cutting-edge change makers. We stay rooted in the community, learning and innovating together. We believe funding can be a form of activism.
