'Tis the season for celebrations, and ATG has a lot to celebrate this year! We've raised a total of $40K so far for our supported orphanages in Asia, scholarship fund and year-round outreach programs – all thanks to our generous supporters and volunteers. Our goal is to reach another milestone by the end of 2013 by raising a grand total of $50K for this year, 100% of which will go towards our our orphanage aid, scholarship and outreach budget for 2014.
Join us in the spirit of giving, and "give" a holiday cocktail (or two) through a tax deductible donation of $10 (or more!) to go towards ATG's cause next year. Your $10 donation will have a greater impact on the lives of the orphans, students and artists than a short term buzz.
Help us reach our $10K campaign goal so that we're able to spread more holiday cheers year-round to those in need.

Led by a Board of experienced, dedicated and passionate young Asian American professionals and community leaders, ATG functions as a traditional non–profit, but with a twist. In true spirit of the definition, the organization finds unique, unconventional, innovative and entertaining ways to give voice to significant, relevant and untold stories in our community through social issue films, outreach/educational programs and cultural community events.Whether through glamorous charity fundraisers like Fashion for a Passion or educational leadership panels like Groundbreakers Speak, ATG's purpose is this: to educate and promote leadership and positive identity and artistry in the Asian American community; create artistic and scholarship opportunities for Asians and Asian Americans; support and represent the diverse Asian American voice through media projects and raise funds for orphanages in Asia.
Your donations also provide food and medical supplies for needy orphanages in Saigon, Hue, and Danang (Vietnam) and now Bangkok (Thailand).
ATG is a made up 100% of volunteers. None of us are paid, except in smiles. We do this because we believe in the cause. All our costs are kept to an absolute minimum so that we can give out the maximum amount we raise (100% of donations!) With your help, each year, we are able to give more and more to our supported orphanages, outreach programs and scholarships for outstanding Asian American students artists and leaders. Thank you for that!
