Serving Palo Alto Chinese Community
WizChinese is an organization serving Chinese families who live in Palo Alto. Our mission is to facilitate the integration of Chinese immigrants with local communities through organizing community building events, partnering with local non-profit organizations, and sharing information and experiences.
Palo Alto Chinese Parents’ Club (PACPC), operating under WizChinese since 2014, provides a platform for the Chinese parents to form strong connections through its social and educational events, school involvement, and resource sharing.
Through its flagship program of the annual Palo Alto Chinese New Year Fair, first inaugurated in 2016, WizChinese promotes cultural exchange and friendship among residents of different backgrounds and contributes to the vibrancy and health of our diverse community.
WizChinese is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and was founded in February 2014 by Palo Alto residents Debra Cen and Amy Yang. Since its inception, WizChinese has been an active contributor and partner in the community.
Fighting Against Coronavirus
In the past four years, Palo Alto Chinese New Year (CNY) fair has become a popular community building event. Every year, all proceeds of the Fair (~$7000/year) were donated to PAUSD. This year the CNY Fair was cancelled due to coronavirus outbreak. It started from Wuhan and now to our own community. WizChinese/Palo Alto Chinese Parent Club started this campaign initially for raising our annual school donation fund and for supporting Wuhan doctors and nurses to fight Coronavirus. By March 2, $4004 raised, $2000 is committed to PTA Council to fund hand sanitizers in schools。Considering the fast recovery of Wuhan from the pandemic and the urgent need of masks in our community, we are now allocating another $2000 to purchasing masks to donate to our community.
The newly raised funds will be used to fight against Coronavirus, either through buying masks to donate to our community or contributing to COVID-19 Funds at PTAC or Palo Alto Community Fund to provide relieve to families impacted by the pandemic.
For this campaign, you have three ways to give: 1) GIVE Cash; 2) SELL Goods, Services or Experience; 3) SHOP Donated Items. Thank you for your support!

Current and Upcoming Events
With the fast development of Coronavirus outbreak in US, many families in our community will suffer from lost wages and high medical bills due to slow down of business, school closure or illness. So new funds raised in this campaign will be donated to PTA Council to provide relief to hard hit PAUSD families.
For this campaign, you have three ways to give: 1) GIVE Cash; 2) SELL Goods, Services or Experience; 3) SHOP Donated Items. Let’s bring our community together to fight against Coronavirus!
