investing in Solutions

We fund nonprofit organizations in the United States serving the Japanese American and greater Asian American communities. Since 2016 we have given more than ninety grants totaling over $1.4 million.

our grants

We have two types of grants. Our large grant program has two application periods per year and awards up to $50,000 per project. Our mini-grant program accepts applications three times a year and grants up to $5,000 for short term projects that are small in scale.

We’ve been proud to support the JA community for over fifty years.

We recognize the challenges and funding shortages that come with these unusual circumstances and are proud to support these organizations and offer our assistance.
