PbP selects a different theme to champion from year to year. Local chapters select a community-based non-profit organization that is focused on issues within that theme and tailors a year-long campaign to help its fundraising, community outreach and public awareness efforts.
Our signature fundraising event is Plate by Plate, an annual tasting benefit featuring star chefs, top rated restaurants, and beverages from across the nation. 100% of the net proceeds raised from Plate by Plate are remitted to our partner organization.
PbP’s projects are designed in cooperation with our partner, usually in direct response to a community need, and range from discrete one-day activities to ongoing service commitments. Through this effort, members develop and hone in on their skills that they can then apply into other aspects of their professional and personal lives.
PbP believes that empowerment cannot occur without an increased level of consciousness. The organization therefore strives to educate and bring about awareness to issues that impact the Asian American community.
Providing Human Capital
Each campaign incorporates multiple components to channel attention and new capital to our partners’ efforts. Our human capital is our key strength, and our Committees, combined with decades of time- tested infrastructure, create solutions that best meet the needs of the community.
