Our Mission

TAH Foundation was created to promote the cultural awareness of the Taiwanese heritage during the annual celebration of the Asian-American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.  Through our sponsorships and community partnerships, we have been able to host events not only to help us reconnect with our roots, but to also help others recognize and embrace the heritage.  It is our hope to bridge a harmonious relationship of Taiwan and being Taiwanese, and being an American.

History of Taiwanese American Heritage Celebration

On October 5th, 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed a joint congressional resolution designating a 7-day period from May 4th-May 10th as the Asian/Pacific American Heritage Week.  This 7-day period coincided with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the immigration of the first Japanese into the United States on May 7th, 1843, and the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10th, 1869.


On May 9th, 1990, President George H.W. Bush signed a bill expanding the observance to a month-long celebration.  Two years later, the Month of May was officially designated as the Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month.
