An Important Announcement from CAPE

Dear Friends & Champions of CAPE,

CAPE is excited to announce that from this point forward we are transitioning from a paid member-driven organization to one that is exclusively mission-driven. What this means for you is that we are eliminating all paid memberships and opening up our programs, services, and events to anyone seeking to make a meaningful impact in support of the AAPI community. We have thought long and hard about this transition, and our hope is that it will help us better serve CAPE’s Mission to champion diversity by educating, connecting, and empowering all Asian American and Pacific Islander artists and leaders in entertainment and media.

CAPE was founded 23 years ago as a non-profit organization to support and connect AAPI’s in entertainment. It started with a series of small networking mixers attended by the few AAPI executives working in the industry at that time. With your support, CAPE has grown tremendously. We have expanded the CAPE New Writers Fellowship, globally launched the #IAM Campaign, which quickly became one of the top four all-time non-profit awareness campaigns in YouTube history, and grown our base of individual and corporate supporters to over 5,000.

We sincerely thank our members, past and present, for supporting the only non-profit organization dedicated to increasing positive AAPI images and representation in entertainment. Although we no longer require membership fees, we still need financial support to cover our climbing operating costs and fund our great events and programs. We’d love for you to consider any membership dues you have paid as a tax-deductible donation to CAPE. However, if you feel that you do not wish to support our Mission in this way, we would be happy to oblige with a pro-rated refund. Regardless, we hope you will consider making a donation to CAPE. If you are unable to make a contribution, please consider moral support by visiting our website and signing up for our newsletter, liking us on Facebook, following us Twitter, and subscribing to our YouTube Channel.

We hope you will encourage others to support CAPE’s Mission to create positive images of AAPI’s in entertainment and media.

Sincerely,

Wenda Fong, CAPE Co-Founder & Board Chair Emeritus
Kevin Iwashina, CAPE Board Chair
