APCC receives $500,000 from the Murdock Foundation



Asia Pacific Cultural Center (APCC) recently received a $500,000 grant from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust of Vancouver, Washington, for the development of a new building at their current Tacoma location, 4851 S. Tacoma Way.

APCC celebrated its 25th anniversary recently, and while APCC continues to meet goals in operating a multi-use facility that is a cultural destination for Pierce County and the State, it has increasing space limitations. “It is time to expand our community offerings and that goal must also include expanding our facility. We will add to our current cultural and educational offerings with language education, foreign exchange programs, visual and performing art exhibits, business services for the local community, residential and commercial leasing, food and beverage attractions, adult and youth education, and career guidance services.

Funding for the new APCC facility will be secured through a combination of public, foundation, business, and individual contributions. A total investment of $9.8 million will transform the existing facility into a venue that will draw thousands of visitors and participants from throughout the state, the country, and perhaps the world. “This family foundation support will be leveraged and play an important role in our private fundraising efforts; this expansion will increase the opportunity for International events and will raise the International profile of the Puget Sound region.

THANK YOU SO MUCH to the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust!!
