The Giving Summit brings together Korean and Asian Americans from across the country to explore and celebrate giving in its many forms.

Over the past few years, unprecedented crises and uncertainty inspired us to think outside of the box and innovate new or different ways to make a meaningful impact. This year’s theme, PHILANTHROPY REIMAGINED, challenges us to examine how the culture of giving is shifting in the Asian American community and reimagine how we can individually and collectively make a difference.



The Summit is returning as an in-person event designed for learning and inspiration through series of lightning talks, interactive breakout discussions, and engaging speaker presentations! Throughout the day, we will:

  • examine how and why we give and envision what the future of philanthropy in the Asian American community could look like;
  • gain actionable insights from Korean Americans who are dynamically reimagining how we can make a difference in the world; and
  • engage in conversation with Summit attendees from across the country to explore how we can cultivate our talents and leverage our resources to uplift our communities.

A detailed agenda and schedule for the day will be shared soon.
