ways to give

As one of the few grant-giving organizations in the U.S. that provides funding specifically targeted at the Korean American community, KACF-SF relies on the support of individuals and companies that share our vision of improving lives and transforming communities.  Equally important, KACF-SF is building a movement of Korean American professionals, leaders and philanthropists who are active in raising awareness about issues challenging our communities and who contribute to developing solutions by leveraging their experience, expertise and financial resources.
