The Beijing Association of New York (BJANY), established since 2005 by a
group of dedicated business people predominately from Beijing, is now
one of the most well known Chinese cultural and educational associations
among the Chinese community in New York. BJANY’s main purpose is to
promote US-China cultural, financial, and educational exchanges within
the Chinese community in New York. BJANY is certified as a non-profit
organization by the US government.
In the past, BJANY has participated
and organized funding for the Beijing National Aquatics Center (also
know as the “Water Cube”) for the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics. BJANY
became one of the largest group from a foreign country to donated to
this project. BJANY has also fundraised for the devastating 2008 snow
storm in Southern China, the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, the 2009 Tornado
in Taiwan, and the 2005 Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.
Since 2011, BJANY has
sponsored a yearly singing contest which showcases Chinese-American
youth in New York City. Winners of this contest go on to compete in the
“Water Cube Cup” in Beijing. In the first year alone, the winner and
runner-up of the local New York City contest went on to place 1st
and 2nd in the final “Water Cube Cup” in Beijing. In the
second year, one of the winners of the local contest went on to win
Bronze in the final “Water Cube Cup”. In 2013, one of the winners of
the local contest won Silver and “Best Composer” at the final “Water
Cube Cup”. In addition, in connection to our sponsorship of the local
contests, BJANY has been awarded the “Excellent Sponsor Award” by the
“Water Cube Cup” organizers for three consecutive years.
BJANY hosts various informational
workshops, provides services to the community, helps people in the
community, and organizes different sporting and social events. BJANY
works hard to improve the community, and to promote cross-cultural
exchanges between the United States and China.
