Lighting the Way Together

At APANO, we have a bold vision of a just world where Asians, Pacific Islanders and all communities who share our struggles have the power and resources to determine our own futures. Though there is much work to do to make that dream a reality, just one spark is all we need to illuminate an entire community and light the way—together.

Through political, social, economic and cultural change, liberation is possible. The path to progress is brought to light through the strength of our community. Join us as we continue to build power, making it possible for all Oregonians to thrive.  

As in years past, we're excited to share our participation in this year's Willamette Week Give!Guide. Alongside so many other amazing nonprofits, we're raising funds this November and December to ensure our work can carry on. Can we count on your support this winter?

We know we don't do this work alone. You're showing up so we can intentionally and thoughtfully be in community. From our Jade Night Market to workforce development, political advocacy, small business advising and youth programming, we are working toward our vision of a just world—together.

This year, we have an ambitious goal to raise $50,000! And we know we can do it with your help.

To sweeten the deal, there are some great prizes up for grabs on Big Give Days (BGDs), including a $500 Powell’s gift card, a Portland Spirit staycation, a Guatemala coffee tour with Nossa Familia Coffee and so much more! And, on certain days, folks under 35 earn extra chances to win. Read all about this year's BGDs here.

No matter the amount, your support is an investment in the future of Asian, Pacific Islander and all marginalized communities in Oregon. It serves as an affirmation of our shared humanity, and we are truly grateful for your partnership.

To make your impact go even further, consider sharing this year's Give!Guide with folks you know! We'll be posting to our Instagram throughout November and December, so give your friends a tag. (Can you think of 5 people who would be interested in supporting our work??)

We all deserve the opportunity to provide for our families and feel a sense of belonging. Thank you for joining us in our efforts to bring that to fruition.

Make sure to bookmark the Big Give Day calendar for your chance to win awesome prizes when you make a donation to APANO through Give!Guide!
