About H.A.W.

Established in 1983, the Hmong Association of Washington (H.A.W.) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that exists to serve the Hmong community in the Puget Sound region (King, Pierce, Snohomish). The Hmong people are an underrepresented minority group within Southeast Asian countries and H.A.W’s mission is to serve the Hmong community in the greater Seattle area. Throughout the year, H.A.W holds community events that are open to the public in which they provide cultural and educational activities year round.

HAW’s mission is to serve the Hmong community in these ways: (1) to preserve and promote the culture, (2) to advocate for the Hmong people, and (3) to promote education in the community.

Your donations are tax-deductible and go toward (a) cultural programming for the annual Hmong New Year Festival, (b) educational awards to promote higher education within our community, and (c) educational/cultural community events.

We are always accepting volunteers, donations, and ideas to help our community.
