For 40 years, FANHS has gathered, documented, preserved, and shared Filipino American history. Our National Office and Archives in Seattle contains hundreds of oral histories, thousands of historic photographs, and tens of thousands of files on individuals, organizations and historic issues – all shared with the general public at no cost. There is no paid staff – and day-to-day work is conducted by volunteers.
In 2016 FANHS’ National Museum opened in Stockton. Our 42 chapters collect their regional histories and FANHS has held 16 biannual national conferences in different cities. In 1990 FANHS created Filipino American History Month which is now celebrated nationally by many Filipino groups and honored by different states and cities.
Each year, during Filipino American History Month, FANHS holds an online auction that helps underwrite our work to document the history of Filipinos in America. We hope you can consider donating to this year’s online auction event on October 14 and 15, 2023. We highlight the businesses and individuals who donate to the FANHS auction. We welcome information (including any photo images) that can be included within the online auction catalog.
Please review this form, and contact Gennette Cordova, online auction volunteer, if you have any questions. Upon completion of the online auction event, the donors are requested to send their donated item(s) directly to the bid winner(s). Since FANHS is a 501c3 non-profit organization, the total amount of your donations and shipping costs are tax-deductible.
