The Korean American Community Foundation (KACF) is the first and largest organization in the U.S. dedicated to mobilizing Korean American philanthropy. Since our inception in 2002, we have awarded $12 million in grants to support programs and initiatives promoting the economic security of low-income Korean and Asian American individuals and families.

Women make up the majority of people served through the initiatives KACF funds, which include:

  • economic empowerment programs for survivors of domestic violence
  • research and advocacy on race- and gender-based discrimination and violence
  • social services for low-income Korean immigrants with low-English proficiency

Women lead the charge.

  • Nearly 80% of our grantee partner organizations are led by a woman.
  • More than 70% of these organizations are led by a Korean American woman.
