The Asia Foundation is a nonprofit international development
organization committed to improving lives across a dynamic and
developing Asia. Informed by six decades of experience and deep local
expertise, our work across the region addresses five overarching
goals—strengthen governance, empower women, expand economic opportunity,
increase environmental resilience, and promote regional cooperation.
Headquartered in San Francisco, The Asia Foundation works through a network of offices
in 18 Asian countries and in Washington, DC. Working with public and
private partners, the Foundation receives funding from a diverse group
of bilateral and multilateral development agencies, foundations,
corporations, and individuals. In 2015, we provided more than $95
million in direct program support and distributed textbooks and other
educational materials valued at over $10 million.
