The 2018 end-of-year giving season is upon us! Join Give2Asia’s #WhatsYourCause campaign to boost awareness and the capacity of local projects in the Asia Pacific. We believe that community-based organizations hold the key to addressing the challenges they face, and donations to them will maximize the impact of charitable giving. Our goal, from October until the end of the year, is to:


Support 100 local causes

that are improving their communities in Asia

Amplify local stories

usually absent from the international spotlight



Each month Give2Asia is giving a bonus financial gift to the organization that is supported by the highest number of individual donors. Help determine the final winner by supporting a local cause in Asia before the end of the year!

November Winner: The American School in Japan

The second campaign winner is Tokyo’s oldest international school: The American School in Japan.

Since 1902, ASIJ has been an embodiment of Japan’s renowned education model by cultivating global citizens that give back to their communities both within and beyond Japan. Their extensive service programs have helped K-12 year youth make a difference across Asia, and they will now begin 2019 with a financial boost to do even more!

October Winner: Sai Maa Vishnu Shakti Trust

The first campaign winner is Sai Maa Vishnu Shakti Trust, a nonprofit in India providing humanitarian services including resources for women’s empowerment, feeding programs, and a Cataract Surgery Project that restores the vision of 100 villagers across 40 villages each year.

Sai Maa Vishnu Shakti Trust will begin 2019 with a bonus financial gift to boost their local impact even further!
