Korean American Foundation
We, as Korean Americans living in this great nation, have been enormously blessed. Because of our core values and principles, we desire to give back to our community to help the most vulnerable and marginalized members of our society. While our philanthropic interest is inclusive of all peoples, we have a particular interest in the welfare of the Korean American community. Korean American Foundation (“KAF”) was formed in response to the need for a trustworthy organization that can steward charitable funds to further such interests.
KAF’s mission is to (i) improve the lives of the most vulnerable and marginalized members of our community with a particular focus on Korean Americans, (ii) promote philanthropy and be an effective and diligent steward of charitable funds, and (iii) collaborate with community-based organizations (“CBOs”) to build their capacity to increase their effectiveness and ensure their sustainability.
