Each year The Nathan Yip Foundation holds a number of fundraising events to raise money to continue its work. The events bring together friends and supporters from around the world with a mission to help children through education. Since the Nathan Yip Foundation is run nearly entirely by volunteers, the monies raised at these events go directly to projects supported by the organization.
The largest fundraising event each year for the Nathan Yip Foundation is the annual Chinese New Year Celebration Gala, held typically in late January or early February.
The event attracts hundreds of supporters who enjoy Denver’s most authentic Chinese New Year Celebration. The gala is also a time to reflect on the work of the Nathan Yip Foundation and celebrate the many projects that are underway that support vulnerable youth in Colorado and around the world. The 2015 Chinese New Year Gala is February 21, 2015, mark your calendars!
Celebrate Sushi! Every summer, in the first or second week of June, Linda and Jimmy Yip invite supporters and friends to their home for an evening of sushi, music and fundraising. The sushi is prepared on-site by Restaurant chef, Miki Hashimoto. Miki’s new restaurant in downtown Denver, TOKIO,will open in July. Tickets are available at the Chinese New Year Gala and on the website beginning in March every year.

Non-Stop Dim Sum. Join Linda and Jimmy Yip at Denver’s most authentic and delicious Chinese Mid-Autumn Moon Festival each September to benefit the Nathan Yip Foundation. Coined the “Thanksgiving of the East,” the festival brings together family and friends for food, song and celebration. The event is held during the Harvest Moon Festival at Kings Land Chinese Restaurant. Ticket sales begin each year in May.
Each fall, the Nathan Yip Foundation Associate Board plans a “BACK TO SCHOOL BAND NIGHT” to raise money for the Nathan Yip Foundation. The Associate Board is comprised of young Denver philanthropists, many of whom were Nathan’s friends from Kent Denver.
Each year, Jimmy and Linda Yip host a trip for supporters to unique destinations. In some cases, the trip will take supporters to visit one of the overseas projects. The trips serve as a fundraising event for the Foundation and also bring friends and supporters together for unique travel experiences. Tickets and information are available at the New Year Gala event.
