Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Civic Engagement Fund is center-left issue advocacy group and a project of NEO Philanthropy.

In July 2020, it was announced that the Sandler Foundation would be donating $200 million to “racial justice groups” in response to the 2020 Black Lives Matter Protests, and Asian American and Pacific Islander Civic Engagement Fund was one of the eight grantees named. The funds will help recipients advocate for left-wing policies in battleground states and create long-term constituencies that support these issues. [1]
