Plate by Plate 2012 will benefit Project by Project. Project by Project, celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, is a national organization that promotes Asian American non-profits in need by raising awareness, volunteerism, and capital.
Last year, PbP SF partnered with Oakland Asian Student Education Services (OASES), an Oakland based non-profit that helps empower students from low-income households through education, mentorship, and services. OASES has multiple programs that provide youth with opportunities not often offered at their schools including peer leadership, environmental education, diversity education, financial literacy, and the arts. All of OASES’ services are intended for students in Oakland’s Unified School District with limited resources from ethnically diverse backgrounds.
In 2010, APA Family Support Services was our first partner organization in the Bay Area. APA Family Support Services (APA) serves to promote healthy Asian/Pacific Islander children and families by providing family support services to prevent child abuse and domestic violence. APA also advocates culturally competent services for Asians and Pacific Islanders through education, community building and leadership development. APA is the only hospital-based agency offering in-home family support services specifically for Asian Pacific Islander families and children.

Project by Project (PbP) is a national 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in New York City in 1998 by a group of young Asian American professionals. The founders surveyed the non-profit landscape and noticed a recurring need in the Asian American community—organizations were spending so much time on fulfilling its missions and executing programs that they were unable to pay enough attention to the business of being a non-profit. The founders of PbP realized that what the community needed was social entreprenuers, and that is what they sought out to build.
Comprised of a team of professionals with backgrounds in finance, consulting, technology, media, entertainment and law, PbP's founding team felt it could play a strong role in assisting community groups in securing capital, reaching out to new groups of volunteers and bringing greater awareness to issues affecting the Asian American community. Based on those principals, PbP created its campaigns around a 3-pronged mission that is still in practice today: Volunteerism, Awareness, and Fundraising.
Building upon those principles and looking to impact as many causes as possible as it expands, PbP created a method of taking on a different local beneficiary community partner every year, touching on a different issue each year. This method of focusing on one issue at a time for a period of a year allows PbP to work in-depth with the partner and thoroughly educate its volunteers on the cause.
Our signature event is "Plate by Plate," our annual tasting benefit, formerly the "Food & Wine Tasting." We are the only Asian American non-profit organization in the country that produces a large-scale food tasting event with star chefs, top rated restaurants and celebrities who participate by serving dishes to our attendees.
Expanding from its New York roots, PbP welcomed its Southern California chapter in 2001, and now the San Francisco/Bay Area chapter in 2009. PbP thrives with the support of a diverse pool of more than 1500 volunteers nationwide. As PbP continues to grow through the support of the community, we are proud to have a part in cultivating a new generation of social entrepreneurs.
