ASIAN, Inc. publishes its first iBook; redesigns site

View our 2014 Annual Report at

We are constantly striving to stay ahead of the curve by embracing new technology. With the dawn of the new Year of the Ram, we've released our 2014 Annual Report as an Apple iBook. On a PC or Android device, the report is also accessible via Flash on our website.

Speaking of our website, we're also unveiling a complete redesign of the site. The new site employs a scrolldown template that should be much more visually appealing on desktop and mobile devices.

Our counselors help families through tax season


VITA 2015 tax clinicThanks to the generosity of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, Wells Fargo Bank and the United Way of Silicon Valley, we are able to provide valuable tax preparation and asset building services to low- to moderate-income households. On March 7, Wells Fargo hosted an ASIAN, Inc.’s tax preparation clinic at its Civic Center branch, in the heart of San Francisco.


Now through April 15, households earning an income of $53,000 or less may receive exclusive, one-on-one in-language tax preparation and financial literacy sessions with our counselors. We are still taking appointments at our San Francisco office headquarters. To schedule an appointment, please call us at (415) 928-5910 x135.

San Jose MBDA clients meet Brig. Gen. Mark Toy

Brig. General Mark Toy

Clients of our Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) Business Center in San Jose had the privilege to meet the recently promoted Brigadier General Mark Toy of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' (USACE) South Pacific Division (SPD) at the inaugural USACE San Francisco District Business Opportunity Open House. The event was held on February 3 at the District office on Market Street and was well attended by business owners who had the chance to cross-network with SF District Division staff.
