Collective Philanthropy Project (CPP)

What is the Collective Philanthropy Project (CPP)?

The CPP is an initiative for Vietnamese student and community organizations to collaborate and partner with in working toward a charitable cause. The idea was to create momentum for a collective national effort under one philanthropic campaign. The CPP campaign assists North American Vietnamese non-profit organizations or philanthropic organizations to better achieve their mission through collective and collaborative partnership with UNAVSA and its constituent groups.

When was CPP created?

The Collective Philanthropy Project (CPP) was created in 2005 during the second annual conference to form an initiative for students and community organizations to collaborate on working towards a charitable cause, in conjunction with the Vietnamese Interacting As One (VIA-1) Conference.

Why was CPP created?

The concept of an annual philanthropy campaign came when youth leaders and professionals were in search of a vehicle to further drive UNAVSA’s mission of developing leaders and regions, networking and a unifying voice outside the conference.
