Help scale the Asia 21 impact!

It was almost 15 years ago that an inaugural convening of close to 200 young leaders from 20 countries launched the Asia 21 network.

Today the Asia 21 Young Leaders Initiative stands as the Asia-Pacific’s foremost young leaders network and has grown to include more than 950 influential individuals from a wide variety of professional backgrounds, representing over 40 countries and regions.

Asia 21 is the only cross sectoral, pan-Asian network of young, diverse change-makers who are united by a shared commitment to values-based leadership. 

We are launching the 2019 Asia 21 Alumni Giving Campaign, an alumni-led endeavor to “give back” to the network that brought us together, to help continue the work of this great initiative. Last year, your fellow Asia 21er Frederick “Fritz” Demopoulos from the Class of 2006 made a generous, multi-year contribution to support Asia 21. This would be good news no matter where the gift originated; the fact that it came from an alumnus of the inaugural Asia 21 class makes it particularly meaningful. We invite you to join Fritz and help make this year's campaign a success. Each of you represents an integral part of the network, and it is important that we are able to demonstrate the broad support of Asia 21 veterans. To that end, no gift is too small; every contribution will make a difference. 

Funds from alumni will go to support the new Asia 21 Action Lab; travel to summits for alumni who cannot afford to join without the travel grant; and other activities that help Asia 21 thrive during the 362 days of the year that are not spent at our summits. Your active participation is encouraged – and much appreciated! 




*Many institutions have programs that match the contributions of their employees. This can double the amount of a contribution at no additional cost to the employeea great way to scale the Asia 21 impact! If your employer has a matching gift program, please consider participating and inform us at so that we can complete the necessary paperwork. Thank you! 


The class of 2018 — 30 extraordinary selectees from across Asia — traveled to the Philippines for discussion, celebration, and networking.
The Asia 21 Action Lab is an alumni run initiative that was created to support organizations founded or led by Asia 21 Young Leaders, to accelerate growth and scale the impact of their work in addressing Asia’s most pressing issues.
