Why Support NQAPIA and the National Conference?

  • Become part of NQAPIA’s critical policy, advocacy and educational initiatives to address homophobia and racial intolerance.
  • NQAPIA is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, so contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law.
  • The conference provides a unique opportunity for visibility among the leading LGBT and AAPI community leaders and professionals, as well as national figures, including elected officials, policy makers and advocates.
  • Support of NQAPIA can demonstrate a company commitment to diversity and can promote moral among company employees who are not only LGBT or AAPI, but for the entire workforce.
  • Nearly 90% of gays and lesbians report that a brand’s sponsorship of LGBT events favorably influences their buying decisions. (Community Marketing, Inc., 2007).
  • The buying power of gay and lesbian consumers is likely to exceed $835 billion. This unparalleled brand loyalty is a compelling reason for any company to partner with an LGBT organization. (The Gay and Lesbian Market in the US by Witeck-Combs Communications Inc., in Packaged Facts 2007.)
  • Asian American buying power was estimated at $543.7 billion in 2010 and is projected to climb to $775.1 billion in 2015. The increase is the highest of all race/ethnic groups.

Travel and Housing Assistance – 2015 National Conference

Travel_Housing_web

We know that it can be hard for some people to get the conference, and NQAPIA wants to be as supportive as possible.

REGISTRATION SCHOLARSHIPS

At NQAPIA, we believe that money should never be a barrier to participating. Partial and full registration scholarships for those with limited incomes are available.

Priority will be given to traditionally underrepresented groups, including people of transgender experience, young people, South Asians, Southeast Asians, Pacific Islanders, refugees, immigrants, women, people from the South, Desert, Mountain, and Plain states, as well as invited workshop presenters.

Notifications will occur on a rolling basis beginning July 1.

TRAVEL SUPPORT

At this time, NQAPIA has extremely limited funds to provide support to cover flights to Chicago. This funding is reserved for the most underrepresented groups in the most under-resourced communities. Our priorities are leaders of transgender experience, Pacific Islanders, Southeast Asians, South Asians, immigrants, and refugees. We are still fundraising until the conference. If all goes well, we hope to offer a bit more, but for now, we are unsure about any additional support.

Email coordinator@nqapia.org to inquire.

HOUSING ASSISTANCE

Free community housing is available. To inquire, complete this form http://bit.do/NQAPIAhousing2015 or email coordinator@nqapia.org.

NQAPIA MEMBER GROUPS ONLY

With the generous support of foundations to support the capacity building of LGBT AAPI groups, NQAPIA is able to provide one hotel room at the Crowne Plaza for three nights for each of the LGBT Asian American, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Pacific Islander organizations across the country. Each room can accommodate up to 4 persons. Contact Glenn Magpantay at glenn_magpantay@nqapia.org or call 917-439-3158 for more information.

FUNDRAISING SUPPORT

To help you get to the conference, NQAPIA can serve as a fiscal sponsor for any groups seeking a tax-exempt [501(c)(3)] non-profit organization to accept foundation grants or tax-deductible donations. Funds can be earmarked for a specific organization, city, or constituency. To learn more, contact Glenn Magpantay at glenn_magpantay@nqapia.org or call 917-439-3158.
