We identify and invest in solutions that meet the needs, interests and concerns of the Japanese American and broader Asian American communities and promote programs that benefit the Japanese American and broader Asian American communities.
We’ve been proud to support the JA Community for over 50 years.
Due to the Affordable Care Act, the plan was reformed into the JACL Health Benefits Trust (dba JA Health Insurance Services), to comply with the rules of the new Healthcare system. The JA Community Foundation was created as a nonprofit foundation in September 2015 by the Trust to use the remaining reserve funds to benefit the community that was served by the health plan, and who paid premiums into the plan for more than fifty years.
This mission is a continuation of our history. Visit the JA Health Insurance Services website to read more about our origins. Watch the video below to meet some of our grantees and to learn more about our work in the JA Community.
We have two LOI application periods in 2022. Check the grant calendar for upcoming deadlines and how to apply.
