If you’re looking for a recap about PbP-LA from our info sessions, we’ve got you covered:
Project by Project is a 501(c)(3) grassroots leadership development organization aiming to develop a pipeline for the next generation of Asian Americans in philanthropy and nonprofit leadership. Founded in 1998, Project by Project has since supported 35 nonprofits in Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco impacting issues including: human trafficking, health care, domestic violence, affordable housing, education, civic engagement, media/arts representation, and economic empowerment.
Through a competitive application process, a local community-based non-profit organization that specializes on issues within the current partner theme is selected to participate in a year-long campaign to receive aid in its fundraising, community outreach, and public awareness efforts. The year-long campaigns include the planning of Project by Project’s signature fundraising event, Plate by Plate, our annual tasting benefit featuring top restaurants and beverage purveyors in LA, NY, and SF attracting thousands of like-minded philanthropic attendees nationwide. For the last 20 years, we have been able to award over $800,000 in grants to our Asian American nonprofit beneficiary partners, enhancing sustainability in serving the needs of their communities.
Project by Project aims to solve issues by providing solutions, engagement, and education to the AAPI community. With Asian Americans & Immigration as Project by Project’s Campaign Partner theme for 2018, our objective is to raise awareness regarding anti-immigration propaganda and major policy changes sweeping our country. Learn about what the data tells us about Asian Americans and Immigration.
In 2018 we are launching our new Project by Project program CASES (Collaborations Accelerating Sustainable Engagement and Solutions), an initiative where we will provide pro-bono skills-based learning opportunities for our steering committee members. These opportunities will include a Nonprofit Training Curriculum to provide members exposure to the social sector and best practices in nonprofit management, as well as a Nonprofit Speaker Series bringing industry experts and leaders in to share insights on how to effect change in the community. Volunteers will apply the knowledge obtained from these experiences to their steering committee and project team duties, enhancing their leadership competencies that would prepare them for future board leadership roles in the AAPI community.
We are looking for committed young professionals passionate about the AAPI community to join our LA steering committee.
