AN ENCORE FOR DREAM OF THE RED CHAMBER IN 2022

For the 21st Century and Beyond

Chinese Heritage Foundation
Mission
The Chinese Heritage Foundation was established, in 2004, by members of the Chinese community of the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area of Minnesota, in cooperation with The Minneapolis Foundation, to preserve and promote, through grant making, the understanding of Chinese history, culture, and heritage among all Minnesotans.
Funding Priorities
The priorities of the Chinese Heritage Foundation recognize the long and rich cultural heritage of the people of Chinese lineage in Minnesota. In 21st century America we acknowledge the challenges of preserving our heritage and we embrace the opportunity to share our cultural wealth with the broader community. All Minnesota organizations and residents are eligible to apply for funding.
Contributing to the Chinese Heritage Foundation or creating your own fund
The Chinese Heritage Foundation Inagural Fund has been established to receive contributions and distribute grants in support of the Chinese Heritage Foundation's funding priorities. It is governed by an advisory committee elected by the contributors. Since it is a component fund of The Minneapolis Foundation, contributions to the Chinese Heritage Fund are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Contributions to the fund are welcome in any amount.

A tireless volunteer, she was a founding member of the Chinese Senior Citizens Society and the U.S. China People Friendship Association.
