Asia Transpacific Foundation

Giving Back to the Communities That Have Offered Us So Much

The Asia Transpacific Foundation was created in 1998 to address the deep personal imperative we felt to return the kindness and generosity extended to our travelers and us in Asia and the Pacific through philanthropic stewardship.

What We Do

The Asia Transpacific Foundation invests in a variety of carefully selected initiatives that support education, conservation, sustainable economic development and emergency relief in Asia and the Pacific. We invite our travelers (and our staff) to visit these projects in person during their travels to strengthen the personal connection that has always been at the heart of our efforts.

Our foundation’s first major project was the Clean Water Initiative in Myanmar (Burma). This initiative provided clean water to children and families in need to improve their standard of living and ensure the future health and vitality of their communities. We’ve celebrated the ultimate success of this project by turning it over to the Burmese people as a self-sustainable, community-based project.

Emergency Relief

In addition to our current initiatives across Asia and the Pacific, the Asia Transpacific Foundation also manages a General Emergency Fund to promptly and efficiently respond to natural disasters and unexpected adversities throughout Asia and the Pacific. Your donations are distributed efficiently and effectively by our long-time partners on the ground in Asia.

The Asia Transpacific Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit—all donations are tax-deductible.


One hundred percent of all donations from our travelers go directly toward our overseas initiatives. All administrative costs of managing the foundation are paid by Asia Transpacific Journeys.


It is only through the aid of our generous fellow travelers that we are able to support those communities most in need, year after year—thank you!
