Give2Asia was founded in 2001 with the goal of helping donors overcome the many challenges of international giving. On the day that Give2Asia launched, our donors benefited from an extensive network of advisors across Asia, from Afghanistan to Japan. Since then we have helped thousands of individuals, companies and foundations meet their philanthropic objectives. Our experience and local presence in over 20 countries helps to ensure that local groups large and small have the resources to carry out their good work.

The Asia Foundation: Key to our ability to serve donor needs across Asia is The Asia Foundation. The Asia Foundation has been serving communities in Asia for nearly 60 years, and offers us the expertise and skills of their field network operating in 17 countries.
Give2Asia in Beijing: In China, we have established our largest presence, which includes an office in Beijing. This enables Give2Asia to support local charitable groups and also stay connected to China’s emerging philanthropic sector.

Our Grantmaking services help thousands of donors reach communities in need. In addition, we work with individuals and donors to better understand the local context and how to most effectively direct their philanthropy. From strategizing regional employee giving programs to helping individual donors with in-person visits to possible grant recipients, we provide in-depth philanthropic advise for the entire region, while navigating the unique needs and challenges for each target community.

Since 2001, Give2Asia has benefited from the guidance of successful business and nonprofit leaders. Our Board of Trustees includes business and philanthropy executives from both the U.S. and Asia, and has grown in size as our organization has grown in order to ensure the best possible results for the donors we serve. With investments made by the Skoll Foundation, the Omidyar Group, The Asia Foundation, the Caterpillar Foundation, Johnson & Johnson and many others, Give2Asia’s success has helped make possible over $150 million in giving in our first 10 years.

We envision Give2Asia as a powerful, global platform for all philanthropy directed to Asia. Give2Asia has primarily served U.S. philanthropy as it forges strong ties across the Pacific. In addition, we have formed partnerships with financial service groups in order to meet the needs of donors in Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore, and our footprint in Asia serves the needs of multi-national companies, as well as Asia-based foundations with projects in multiple communities.
