We had a wonderful time in Portland attending our strategic partner, Kidspire - Orphan Impact's gala. Supporters generously gave over $200,000, and we were able to announce our grant to them this year on stage.
Orphan Impact is pleased to be the recipient of a $25,000 grant from the Chao Foundation and Transparent Fish Fund. The funds have been granted to support the Orphan Impact computer and internet training program for 288 orphan children, age 8 to 17, in orphanages throughout Vietnam. This is the second consecutive year Orphan Impact has received a grant from the Chao Foundation and Transparent Fish Fund. The generosity of this grant has been instrumental in helping Orphan Impact to strengthen core program areas and expand to reach more children in more orphanages.
About Transparent Fish Fund
Transparent Fish Fund is a 501©(3) US non-profit organization founded in 2011 in Palo Alto, California, established exclusively for charitable purposes to connect credible Chinese and East Asian grassroots NGOs with individuals from the West.

About Chao Foundation
The Ping and Amy Chao Family Foundation was founded in California’s Silicon Valley in 2005 by Ping Chao and his wife Amy. The foundation was established to fund nonprofit and public welfare initiatives that (1) improve children’s health in developing countries; and (2) nurture a spirit of philanthropy among the younger generation in China and of the greater Chinese Diaspora. While the Chao Foundation is based in the Bay Area and has local projects, many of its programs focus on developing countries in East Asia, from China and Cambodia to Vietnam.
