Who We Are

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Gay Asian Pacific Alliance (GAPA) Foundation is dedicated to exploring critical issues that affect the Asian/Pacific Islander LGBTQ community and supporting innovative programs and individuals seeking solutions to those issues.

Currently we provide academic scholarships to non-traditional API LGBTQ students and core funding to under-resourced and/or underrepresented local community organizations and projects. In addition to the monetary support, GAPA Foundation also seeks to nurture and support these organizations for future growth and independence through infrastructural support such as mentorship and leadership development.


GAPA Foundation provides funds and leverages resources to empower the Asian/Pacific Islander LGBTQ community.


To achieve a nationally influential API LGBTQ community that provides and amplifies our collective voices to promote equality and positive social perception.


GAPA Foundation is committed to providing accountability, transparency, and value to our donors and supporters who are integral partners in our stewardship of the API LGBTQ community. Largely funded by individual donors, GAPA Foundation’s donor base is as diverse as the community we serve. From donor advised grants to planned giving, we hope to provide our donors with impactful giving opportunities. Please consider supporting us today.
