The William Penn Foundation is donating $1 million to help disadvantaged Asian-Americans in Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The donation is part of the foundation's Spark Change initiative, which aims to fight discrimination and poverty among Asian-Americans and other underrepresented groups.
