About Us: The Asian Mosaic Fund (AMF) Giving Circle is a diverse group of multi-generational donors committed to advancing the well-being of the Greater Philadelphia Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander community. We envision a flourishing Asian community made up of safe, thriving, and diverse sectors, strengthened by dynamic leadership that empowers the Asian community to fully participate in all levels of society. AMF is a member of the AAPIP National Giving Circle Network.
About Our Grants: Each year, the AMF Giving Circle raises funds to be distributed to organizations that serve the Asian community in accordance with our mission and values. Both established nonprofit organizations and emerging community-based organizations have received grants to support the important work they do. To date, over $165,000 in grant funds has been distributed to a wide range of deserving organizations. Grants are awarded through our voting membership model where the final selection is determined by the votes of all eligible AMF’s donors. Each grant is typically $5,000 and the total number of grants is based on available funds. For more information about our voting membership please see our website at https://www.amfphilly.org/membership.html
What We Fund: The AMF Giving Circle will provide unrestricted general operating support. These grant funds can be used for any purpose determined by the grantee. We believe that general operating support funds will help to support the grantees’ sustainability, growth, and impact.
