2021 GRANT APPLICATION
The Chopstix for Charity Grants Program seeks to fund not-for-profit organizations that provide services or benefits to Asian and Pacific Islander communities in metro Atlanta. We have a particular interest in funding organizations or projects that directly engage members of the Asian and Pacific Islander community in making transformative, positive change within their own community. Our grant application is CLOSED for 2021.
NAAAP Atlanta will announce this year’s grant recipients at the 24th Annual Chopstix for Charity gala which will be held in-person on Saturday, October 21 from 6:00-10:00 PM at The Carlyle in Atlanta. In an effort to host this event as safely as possible due to COVID-19, we have reduced our normal capacity so a limited number of tickets will be available for sale to the public.

About Chopstix for Charity
Chopstix for Charity is our premier charity event, connecting corporations, small businesses and individuals to the local Asian Pacific Islander community through an annual fundraising event. The National Association of Asian American Professionals – Atlanta Chapter’s Chopstix for Charity (CFC) connects corporations, small businesses and individuals to the local Asian Pacific Islander community through an annual fundraising event that provides grants to non-profit organizations based in the greater Atlanta metro area. Since its formation, Chopstix for Charity has allocated over $650,000 in grants.
Chopstix for Charity was established in 1997 through the collective efforts of various Asian-American organizations in Atlanta, including the Organization of Chinese Americans (OCA), the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL), and NAAAP Atlanta. In 2002, NAAAP Atlanta received its 501(c)(3) status and assumed ownership of the fiscal responsibilities of CFC. In 2007, CFC was the signature evening event featured at the 21st annual NAAAP National Convention & Diversity Career Fair. Since then, CFC’s Organizing Committee has officially merged with NAAAP Atlanta’s Executive Board to strengthen its impact and connections within the Atlanta community.
