Grants
Founded in 1986, Taiwanese United Fund (TUF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the understanding of Taiwanese people and culture. TUF regularly sponsors cultural events, e.g. concerts, arts affairs, and colloquiums on films and literature which features Taiwanese musicians, artists, film directors and writers. To broaden cultural exchange, TUF has established a grant program to support research, publications, programs, and activities that enhance TUF's mission.

Grant Guidelines

TUF's Grants Committee administers, processes, and reviews  grant applications, and makes recommendations to the TUF Board of Directors for final decisions. The Grants Committee, in general, observes the following established guild lines:

  1. Funding is limited to a maximum of 50% of the program's direct expenses.
  2. Funding is only for the direct expenses of a program, and should not be used for the operating cost of an organization that oversees the program.
  3. TUF seeks diversified programs to support, and has a 20% funding goal for the type of program that have not been funded by TUF.
  4. TUF encourages participation of the youth in community affairs, and has a 20% funding goal for programs that have not been funded by TUF.
  5. TUF's grant policies are reviewed periodically. Its funding priority may differ from one year to another based on its key objectives at a given time.
  6. Programs receiving TUF grant recipients shall acknowledge TUF's support, commensurate the grants received, in related publications, public announcements and promotional materials.
  7. Grant applications may be submitted anytime while funding is available. The Grants Committee will make its best effort to complete the review process in three months. Applications received after     the funding has been exhausted will not be processed until new funding is available for the following fiscal year, which begins January 1st.

Midwest ITASA Conference - Taiwan Taking Root

To take root means to make a place your own. Like a tree, one needs roots to thrive. Our Taiwanese heritage will always be a part of who we are, but we hold a unique perspective because we soak up the culture and qualities of the American environment around us. We aim to share in the self-discovery of Taiwanese Americans reaching their roots, both in Taiwanese and US soil. But while reaching down, we must also branch out to cultivate a united Midwestern community.
