Project by Project Incorporated
Project by Project (PbP) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in New York City in 1998 by a group of young Asian American professionals who noticed a recurring need in the Asian American community—organizations were spending so much time on fulfilling its missions and executing programs that they were unable to pay enough attention to the business of being a non-profit. The founders of PbP realized that they could play a strong role in assisting community groups in securing capital, reaching out to new groups of volunteers and bringing greater awareness to issues affecting the Asian American community. Based on those principals, PbP created its campaigns around 3-prongs that is still in practice today: Volunteerism, Awareness, and Fundraising. Our signature event is "Plate by Plate," our annual tasting benefit, formerly the "Food & Wine Tasting." We are the only Asian American non-profit organization in the country that produces a large-scale food tasting event with star chefs, top rated restaurants and celebrities who participate by serving dishes to our attendees. Expanding from its New York roots, PbP welcomed its Southern California chapter in 2001, and the San Francisco/Bay Area chapter in 2009.
