Support Asian American Scholar Forum (AASF)

Thank you for supporting Asian American Scholar Forum (AASF). AASF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization promoting the Asian American community at a time of rising anti-Asian sentiment and hate. AASF accomplishes this through education and research, advocacy, and building up leaders within the Asian American community.  AASF came into existence to provide a national voice and a seat at the table for the Asian American and immigrant scientists, researchers,educators, and scholars.  We are a leading organization for expertise in policy work in science and research security within Asian American advocacy work.

We need supporters like you to help us educate future generations, build leaders of tomorrow, and advocate for our communities. Please donate today to make a more just and inclusive future for all.

Your contributions are tax-deductible. Please note that we were formerly registered as Chinese American Scholar Forum, Inc. We officially updated our name to Asian American Scholar Forum, Inc. in 2021, but the IRS has not yet updated the name in their database. You may see the old name when you search for our EIN number (86-3593724). Both names belong to the same organization.
