What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In 2007, the foundation’s President Dale Asis, went on a yearlong fellowship from the Chicago Community Trust, and traveled to his mother’s native village in Bicol, Philippines, where he was confronted by the poverty of his own distant relatives. Many of them literally wanted to travel inside his luggage and join him back in Chicago. At that time, he was working as the Executive Director of the Coalition of African, Arab, Asian, European and Latino Immigrants of Illinois (CAAAELII), one the largest immigrant-led coalitions in the country. Dale was advocating for tens of thousands of immigrants and refugees but their numbers kept increasing exponentially every year. Dale felt that he was bailing water out of a flooded basement and he was too exhausted to even look around to plug the “hole”. Dale’s visit to his mother’s village was a turning point in his life. He realized that the “hole” was the abject poverty of his own relatives and millions of workers in many migrant-sending countries

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Bayanihan Foundation's long term goals are:
1) PROMOTE NEXTGEN youth leadership development
2) INCREASE philanthropy especially among young Filipino Americans locally and globally
3) ADVOCATE for other social issues affecting Filipinos in the US and abroad through strategic partnerships and linkage agreements

Filipinos abroad are fragmented into tens of thousands of groups and hometown associations. Chicago alone has over 250 associations for a local population of 93,000 Filipinos. Many do not talk about the country’s colonial past and the cultural obstacles confronting them such as ‘crab mentality’, fragmentation, distrust and the intense competition among one another. The Bayanihan Foundation acknowledges these challenges and would like to anchor its work in these traditional values to promote NEXTGEN youth leadership development, organizing and advocacy:
• ‘Tiwala’ (trust)
• ‘Kabalikat’ (interdependence, sharing responsibilities)
• ‘Pagkakaisa’ (mutuality, helping each other)
• ‘Tradisyon’ (traditional values of helping ‘bayanihan’)

Three Action Steps:
1. Educate and build leadership of 30 NEXTGEN youth leaders that will help change legislation,
improve lives and create systemic change that will eventually decrease poverty and outmigration
2. Promote Community Power Giving Circle, encouraging integration among NEXTGEN youth and Filipinos abroad to uphold the traditions of both the Filipino culture and its host country. The concept of integration is opposite to assimilation where immigrants discard its traditional values and adopt solely the language and values of its host country
3. Partner and advocate with four Filipino groups and create linkages with them to help advocate for additional legislation that will help improve lives and decrease outmigration.

The Bayanihan Foundation has competent and capable staff and board leaders to tackle the challenges the foundation faces. Dale Asis co-founded two immigrant and ethnic alliances: Coalition of African, Arab, Asian, European, and Latino Immigrants of Illinois (CAAAELII); and the United Congress of Community and Religious Organizations (UCCRO). He received a Master’s degree in Social Sciences from the University of Chicago and is completing his PhD studies in Social Work at Loyola University Chicago. He also helped build a network of over 120 diaspora philanthropic organizations in the Chicago area with the Chicago Global Donors Network. In 2017, Dale is currently the Financial Director at the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (LVEJO), a local environmental justice organization in Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood.

So far, the Bayanihan Foundation has achieved the following progress:
1) Disbursed thousands of dollars in philanthropic projects for the last seven years.
2) Developed 12 meaningful partnerships over the last seven years
3) Developed 1,200 database of diaspora donors
4) Developed 12 new Filipino youth leaders as part of NEXTGEN
5) Startup of Community Giving Circle stalled in 2017

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
