Asia Society’s work impacts millions of people’s lives in profound ways. We are trailblazers in education and global competence, giving countless students the tools to compete and succeed in an increasingly globalized world. We are leading a major effort to help bring Mandarin-language instruction to children throughout the United States. We are developing a diverse network of dynamic young leaders and identifying true game changers who are making a positive contribution to the future of Asia. And our 12 locations in the United States, Asia, and Europe serve as hubs of inspiration and discovery for their communities. Now is the time for you to be part of the change.

Campaign Priorities

Educating students for employability and citizenship in a global era.
A diverse network shaping a brighter future for the Asia-Pacific region.
Honoring true leaders making a positive contribution to the future of Asia.
Inspiring, challenging, and uniting communities the world over.

“I applaud Asia Society and its dedicated staff and supporters for enriching the cultural vitality of this great city and the world.”
