AAF's 2011 Community Fund Grantees and Award Winners

For 23 years, the Asian American Federation has been working hard to advance the well-being and civic voice of Asian Americans.

We are the only pan-Asian, multi-issue umbrella organization of its kind funding, serving and advocating on behalf of our 40+ member agencies in the NY metro/regional area. Here are some testimonies from our volunteers, funders and community agencies:

"I am proud to collaborate with AAF in its efforts to serve and support our community at large. It has enabled me and my colleagues to actively engage in public service and give back to those in need. We look forward to continuing our work with AAF to help make a positive impact." - Vinny Lee, Associate, Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP

"AAF has provided critical support, not only sustaining, but truly strengthing us through the economic crisis. They help us meet community needs when it's most pressing through capacity building efforts, technical assistance, and convening other Asian groups. We continue to look to AAF in supporting Asian American organizations and communities." - Steven Choi, Executive Director, MinKwon Center for Community Action

"The Federation has been more than a funder to us. Their leadership team genuinely cares about all their members regardless of size and issue and supports all of us to succeed, so that we continue to do the work we know best. When we experienced some challening times in our formative years, the Federation was instrumental in guiding us to the right direction. Even today, I always speed-dial the Federation for their advice." - Grace Yoon, Executive Director, Korean American Family Service Center

"...of all the roles the Federation plays, its most powerful impact is that of a convener and broker to agencies, government, businesses and funders. The Federation's long standing reputation and credibility elevate the potential that collaborations and partnerships can succeed." - Nelson Louis, Executive Officer, The Ong Family Foundation
