The Cathay Bank Foundation was initially founded in 2002 for the purpose of raising and administering funds for community-based nonprofit organizations.
The Cathay Bank Foundation serves community needs in eight states, California, New York, Illinois, Washington, Texas, Massachusetts, Nevada and New Jersey.
With offices in these states, the Foundation seeks to work with well-established nonprofit organizations to pioneer approaches and to reach communities.
The Cathay Bank Foundation, an affiliate of Cathay Bank, is a nonprofit organization.
The Foundation's mission is to enhance the growth and success of communities in which the Bank serves. The Foundation's ultimate objective is to create opportunities in areas of affordable housing, community and economic development, and education. The Foundation will also consider supporting culture and arts, health and welfare, environmental and human services and programs that benefit the communities at large.
