KACF Steering Committee's Blog

The Korean American Community Foundation transforms and empowers communities through philanthropy, volunteerism and inter-community bridge building. KACF pursues these goals through grantmaking that promotes self-sufficiency for the underserved and under-resourced, through raising awareness of needs and issues, and by fostering a culture of giving.

Formed in 2005, SC is comprised of young working professionals in New York City with a deep passion for their community. Its mission is to foster a sense of philanthropy and volunteerism among young Korean Americans to create positive social change.

On Saturday, April 21, 2012, KACF’s Steering Committee will host a Public Education event to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the LA riots and discuss the need for continued dialogue and bridge building across communities.
