Hyphen magazine - Asian American arts, culture, and politics

Donate to Subscribe


Did you know that Hyphen’s a nonprofit? Currently produced by an all-volunteer staff? Since we borrow office space and don’t get paid, all donations go toward the production of the magazine and the various events we put on to promote the magazine. 

As a thank you for donating, anyone who donates $20 or more will receive a summer and winter issue of Hyphen.

Do you want to subscribe? When donating, we sure to check the box "I would like to make a recurring donation deducted annually" and you will receive your issues each year.

Donations can be made online through Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA) simply by clicking the button below.

*Hyphen is fiscally sponsored (but not funded) by CAA, a progressive voice in and on behalf of the broader Asian and Pacific American community. CAA advocates for systemic change that protects immigrant rights, promotes language diversity, and remedies racial injustice. Contributions made through CAA are tax-deductible. Any amount is deeply appreciated.

Please note clicking the button will take you to GiveDirect.org.  Choose "Hyphen Magazine" from the Program Areas drop-down menu to donate to us.



Donations can also be sent via check or money order payable to "Chinese for Affirmative Action," with "Hyphen" in the note.
