#GivingTuesday isn’t just about fundraising, it’s about the collective spirit of generosity that brings change to our communities.

This #GivingTuesday, we've embarked on a campaign to raise $2,500 towards general operations and program support. Each dollar enables the organization to develop more robust API arts and cultural programs that empower diverse voices, experiences, and creative expressions. 

At the Oakland Asian Cultural Center (OACC), it is our joy and privilege to bring free events and programs to the community, including performances, workshops, festivals, school tours, classes, and exhibitions. We are fortunate to be able to work with amazing community-builders dedicated to the same vision at OACC, and often with less than adequate funding. It is our dream to develop programs to their fullest potential, and you can help us do that!

Below is a short list of how your donations help us:
