An Overview of NGEC's Strategies

To advance our mission toward long-term, systemic change, the NGEC focus on two key areas of work: social justice capacity building with grassroots AAPI organizations and mobilizing resources through philanthropic advocacy with key alllies in the field.  While national in scope, the NGEC focuses our capacity building efforts in the two pilot states of California and Minnesota given the unique spectrum of issues and demographics in their AAPI communities. 

At the end of NGEC's 3-year Organizational Fellowship Program (OFP), AAPIP intends to create an intermediary called BRIDGE to share tools, outcomes and lessons from NGEC's capacity building work with multi-ethnic communities and organizations working for social justice.


Building Social Justice Capacity

As NGEC's capacity building program in two pilot states, Minnesota and California, the Organizational Fellowship Program (OFP) provides multi-year core operating support, peer-to-peer learning spaces, and culturally relevant skills-building trainings to develop organizational social justice capacity. The 12 organizations selected for the OFP represent the hope and potential within our communities to develop a stronger, more politically conscious base of those most impacted by inequity. More »


Mobilizing Resources for Social Justice

AAPI partners

NGEC recognizes that funding the social justice movement is critical to strengthening our democracy. We advocate for creating and sustaining the movement building infrastructure of AAPI communities through our investments in grassroots leaders and community organizations working for social change. As part of AAPIP’s commitment to social justice philanthropy, the NGEC's Organizational Fellowship Program (OFP) is modeling a community-based grantmaking approach. More »

We are creating BRIDGE to be a national, social justice infrastructure building intermediary co-created with community. The BRIDGE vision is to build a more inclusive society. The BRIDGE intermediary will focus on movement building tools and resources which have been developed and tested in communities through the National Gender & Equity Campaign.
