ASIAN JEWISH INITIATIVE
The Initiative was founded by the Anti-Defamation League in December 2006 as a partnership with the Asian Pacific American Legal Center, Japanese American National Museum, Korean American Coalition, Leadership Education for Asian Pacifics and Search to Involve Pilipino Americans. Since that time, the Initiative has brought together members of the business, civic, academic and interfaith communities to engage in a variety of innovative programs and activities that include political, social, religious and cultural components. The Initiative's mission is: "to advance alliances and partnerships between Asian and Jewish communities in Los Angeles through constructive dialogue and exploration of common ground; to empower and enrich both communities; and to foster a positive environment for open and frank discussion about topics of mutual concern."

The Asian Pacific Community Fund is a 501(c)(3) community-based fund that was created to fulfill a need for a unified effort to educate and encourage donors to direct their charitable giving to benefit community organizations serving the rapidly growing population of Asian Pacific Islanders in Los Angeles.

Since its founding, APCF has raised and distributed over $1.5 million in unrestricted grants to its Affiliates. These grants enable APCF agencies to both launch new initiatives and strengthen current programs and services for diverse Asian Pacific Islander clients, including: disadvantaged children, youth, disabled, seniors, immigrants, refugees, battered women, and low income families.
