Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and Philanthropy in 2040


The trends we see in today’s philanthropy will have significant effects on the philanthropy of 2040, especially for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. As the blended, multiracial Asian American population continues to increase, the very definition of Asian American philanthropy is up for grabs. Add in the trend of giving while living, the increase in the blurring of philanthropic forms and structures, and the ubiquity of technology, social media, and connectedness, and you have a future of philanthropy in 2040 that is more diverse, global, and participatory than the present day.
