About Power in Solidarity
Over 30 years ago, Asian American, Pacific Islander, and Native American professionals in philanthropy came together to build a new vision for power in the sector. From this vision, our organizations were born: Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy (AAPIP) and Native Americans in Philanthropy (NAP).
In honor of our shared origin story, AAPIP and NAP are hosting a Gathering of our relatives and relations in the philanthropy field. Together, we will celebrate the leadership of our peoples and cultures in the sector, develop strategies to build power and increase resources in our communities, and most importantly—have fun!
Why do we gather?
We gather to live and express our commitment to transformative solidarity, to redefine power in the spirit of generosity, and to celebrate the unanticipated and extraordinary rewards of togetherness.
Over three days, we will:
Welcome and celebrate the reunion of our philanthropic families with new and long-time members.
Gather as AAPIP and NAP networks to share our strategic direction, hold annual meetings, and attend network-specific business.
Gather as a larger community to center solidarity and leadership that can grow beyond our time together.

Closing Plenary: Walking the Walk - Funding Solidarity through Civic Engagement
Asian American, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islanders, and Native American communities are among the most overlooked and underfunded in philanthropy. Yet, some funders have intentionally invested significant resources in power building for these communities. In this conversation, we share lessons from the field. Come hear how the Coulter Foundation partnered with leaders in the AAPI and Native communities to move resources to local civic engagement organizations across the country.
12:00pm - 12:30pm
Power in Solidarity: A New Beginning - Concluding Remarks with Patricia Eng and Erik Stegman
Native Americans in Philanthropy (NAP) promotes equitable and effective philanthropy in Native communities. With more than 30 years of experience, we work closely with our counterpart organizations advocating for Tribal communities. The cornerstone of our work is our relatives and our networks. We support several communities of stakeholders that work together to build knowledge, community, priorities, and power in the sector. These networks include Native professionals in philanthropy, elected Tribal leaders, Native youth leaders, Native philanthropic executives and board members, and Native nonprofit leaders.
AAPIP is a justice-minded, national philanthropy-serving organization that provides unique community spaces for Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, and allies in philanthropy. Our mission is to expand and mobilize resources for AANHPI communities to build a more just and equitable society in solidarity with all communities of color.
