CAUSE at 25: Alumni Fundraising

We're recognizing 25 outstanding alumni of our leadership programs! Each alumni spotlighted has been asked to help collectively raise $25,000 for our 25th anniversary. 

For 25 years, CAUSE has worked tirelessly for the civic and political empowerment of the Asian Pacific American (APA) community. CAUSE has been successful in reaching thousands of next generation leaders and voters. 

Our theme this year is “The Time Is Now.” The APA community is one of the fastest growing populations in the United States, but remains severely underrepresented. As our country enters a new era of politics, it is more important, now more than ever to mobilize and empower our community, to make an impact in future elections. We want to ensure that the many voices in our communities are being heard. CAUSE will be highlighting our revamped voter outreach, training, and education programming efforts.

The Annual Gala is our nonprofit organization’s largest fundraiser of the year. Funds raised help sustain our many programs and services.
