The Grand Rapids Asian-Pacific Foundation (GRAPF) is a 501c3 nonprofit deeply ingrained in our community, driven by a purposeful mission to weave cultural enrichment, economic empowerment, community unity, and proactive education into the fabric of West Michigan communities. 

We aim to provide resources and opportunities to ensure our community's success. GRAPF centers its efforts around four pillars:

Our mission is to shape a vibrant, inclusive, and thriving community where cultural awareness, economic empowerment, individual growth, and community education intersect seamlessly. We are dedicated to providing an environment where everyone can prosper, contribute significantly to our communities, and initiate positive change. This commitment forms the core of our dedication to the Asian-American and Pacific Islander communities. Beyond these communities, we actively foster cross-cultural understanding and create opportunities for everyone to thrive. Together, through cultural events, business initiatives, and talent development programs, we are actively shaping a brighter, more inclusive future for everyone.
