Grant from the O’Neill Foundation for Communication Measurements

Cleveland, OH- Asian Services In Action, Inc. (ASIA, inc.) is delighted to announce its grant award from O’Neill Foundation in the amount of $29,555 to improve the way it measures and communicates its impact on the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community in Northeast Ohio.

With this funding, ASIA will partner with Philliber Research Associates (PRA) to design effective outcomes and performance measurements and tools, which is foundational to the organization’s long-term sustainability. These measurements and tools will enhance ASIA’s ability to effectively monitor and document various programs’ impact and communication on current and future funders, individual donors and stakeholders.
