National Chinese American Hero Foundation (NCAHF)
CAPSC and the Outstanding Mothers Committee have joined together with the families of Zach Zeng and Jeffrey Lam to establish the National Chinese American Hero Foundation (NCAHF). The National Chinese American Hero Foundation (NCAHF) pays homage to the heroes who defend our national ideals through encouraging academic excellence in the local community.
The aims of this Foundation are:
To pay tribute to Zach Zeng and Jeffrey Lam, and other heroes who have given their lives in the service of our country.
To offer financial assistance to the families of those who died fighting for our nation’s freedom and ideals.
To encourage young Asian Americans to serve the community with the same courageous spirit as the honored heroes.
To recognize those who have devoted themselves to the community and the nation, and served as inspirational figures to young Asian Americans.
Types of Outreach:
Our fundraising events regularly solicit donations for providing scholarships to local youths as well as raise the organization’s community profile.
The National Hero Foundation also hosts different events to encourage our youths to become active, confident and ambitious members of society.
Those who show academic excellence, exhibit special talents in a particular field, or are highly active in community service are all eligible for the National Hero Scholarship.

The main goal in establishing the National Chinese American Hero Foundation (NCAHF) is to encourage young Chinese Americans to learn responsibility and develop their potential. This would allow them to contribute more to their family, society, and the nation. It also allows talented local youths to enter mainstream society and help break the glass ceiling of American society.
A long-term goal of the NCAHF is to build a core of talented, idealistic, and committed young students. Over time, all the students who benefitted from the NCAHF will form a community and can work together to help one another achieve academic and economic success. Because these students are identified in part for their commitment to community service, they will invariably then return to local communities using their skills to help improve local welfare.
