Mission Statement

The mission of the American Pakistan Foundation is to catalyze support for projects and initiatives that are important to the future of Pakistan and its relationship with the United States.

Description

The American Pakistan Foundation was formed as a result of a meeting, of the national representation of diaspora, private sector and public-policy makers, who came together in New York City at the invitation of the Foreign Minister of Pakistan, Shah Mahmood Qureshi. The attendees of the May 2009 meeting concluded that the private sector has a vital role to play in the future direction of Pakistan and also in promoting greater understanding and trust between the U.S. and Pakistan.

APF was launched publicly in December 2009 with an inaugural benefit in New York City featuring U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Dr. Moeen Qureshi and former Secretary of State General Colin Powell.

Secretary Clinton stated: "This foundation represents a new potential for this community’s impact to multiply. By harnessing your energy and coordinating your efforts, even more people can benefit."
