Development Director
National Asian Pacific Center on Aging in Seattle, Washington
Date Posted 08/11/2020
Employment Type Fulltime
Application Deadline Open until filled

At the National Asian Pacific Center on Aging (NAPCA), we are guided by a commitment to excellence and core values that mobilize teamwork and collaboration to empower and advocate with and for Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs), the fastest growing and most diverse ethnic group in America. NAPCA is the only national nonprofit organization with a mission to preserve and promote the dignity, well-being, and quality of life of AAPIs as they age.

What motivates us? Respect. Honor. Love. Most of all, the opportunity to create impact in the lives of the people we serve and to empower our seniors to thrive.

As diverse as we are as AAPIs, the common thread that ties us together is our families. Our parents, and grandparents before them, have instilled the value of family above all things, and that’s what makes our AAPI elders so special.

Over the generations, AAPI families who have immigrated to the U.S. have given us gifts from their host cultures, including language, cuisines, arts, religion, talents, customs, music, and courtesies. As a result, our lives are richer because of the elders who have come before us. Now, it is our turn to give back and we invite you to join us!
