New YorkTimes: Asian American Influence Growing in Philanthropic Circles

posted by Randall

CharityAs Asian Americans grow in numbers, a new class of Asian American philanthropists are developing, reports the New York Times.  They are giving to universities, hospitals, museums and concert halls. They are giving back monetarily to projects and causes benefiting their own communities. And they are gaining seats on a number of influential boards. “I don’t have to ask for funds twice, because they’re beginning to understand,” Ms. Han-Andersen said, a former management consultant and concert pianist who runs two family foundations. “They see their mainstream American peers giving and they say, ‘I’m going to do that,’ ” said Mr. Kashyap, vice-chairman of the American India Foundation.  Some predict the uptick in Asian American giving is just the start of more to come.
