Announcing MASALA’s first grantees

Last year, the MASALA Giving Circle mobilized donors from DCs South Asian community to focus their giving on local organizations working for the disadvantaged and underserved among us.

As a result, we raised $15,000 for these inspiring, deserving organizations:

dvrp_logo2) Asian/Pacific Islander Domestic Violence Resource Project (DVRP) provides services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia.

zen_classic_logo3) Asian Pacific American Legal Resource Center (APLRC) provides linguistically accessible and culturally appropriate legal services to low-income Asian immigrants in the metropolitan D.C. area who have limited English proficiency.
