Our Story

The BMPP Giving Circle is made up of a collective of families who believe that we can build a better future for all children by coming together to celebrate, learn about, and provide resources 
to fuel the change we want to see in the world.

We are Asian American immigrant and refugee families who’ve benefited from the generosity of those who’ve come before us, and understand that it is our role to lead by example for future generations. 

Our families come from generations of giving, and now we want to model that giving by finding new practices in philanthropy that help us continue building a better world for our children and their children.

Our Mission

Fueling good ideas that build a better world.

Our Vision

We envision a world where individuals are nurtured and families are supported so that conditions are created for communities to achieve their full potential.
