Since 2001, Comcast has provided $2.2 billion in cash and in-kind support to national and local non-profit organizations across the country. Comcast works with non-profits to create successful programs that improve the quality of life, focusing on digital literacy, education, youth leadership, and volunteers.  Comcast is a national partner of the Asian American Justice Center and has consistently supported key API efforts like the Asian Heritage Street Festival and the Hep B Free campaign. Last year, Comcast executed a landmark agreement with the Asian Pacific Islander community that will pave new ground for APIs in media and communication. The agreement includes: expanding the distribution of Asian American owned, operated and targeted programming, launching a new API focused video-on-demand offering as part of its standard digital package available to 18 million subscribers, and dedication of a $1 million to build a bigger pipeline for Asian American-themed programming. So far, Comcast has established a groundbreaking senior-level member of its external affairs and the public policy staff to serve as a community liaison. In addition, Comcast has appointed nine members to its new Asian American Advisory Council.
