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 almost entirely by volunteers, the monies raised at these events go directly to projects supported by the organization.


2016 Chinese New Year Gala

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 2016 Chinese New Year event will be held on Saturday, January 30, 2016. Tickets are available now!

Shanghai Gala

Every other year, the Nathan Yip Foundation celebrates our roots with the Shanghai Gala. Hosted by Nathan’s godparents, Kevin and Stephanie Tung, the Shanghai Gala not only allows us to connect with our supporters in China, it also draws many of our U.S. supporters. The funds raised at the Shanghai Gala are used to provide ongoing support Nathan Yip Foundation projects in China, which include two schools and an orphanage/school in Guangdong Province, four schools in Guizhou Province, one school in both Jiangxi and Hunan Province, and an orphanage/school in Fujian Province. Join us for this tremendous party and know that your good time is providing better times for children in need.
