Japantown Foundation Accepting Grant Applications for 2022-2023

This year, the Board of Directors for the Foundation will be focusing on three priorities: providing capital grants; projects that honor the founding members of our SF Japanese American community, and capacity building activities.

Regrettably, we will cancel our annual Osechi Ryori event in January 2023 out of the concern for the health and safety of our participants.  However, our successful online fundraising campaign to support Japanese American community organizations has created the ability for us to offer a grant application program this year, and we hope that you will support our efforts and the efforts of those we will select as grantees for funding.

We thank all the generous donors who supported our online fundraising efforts during the Covid-19 pandemic. Click here to see our generous supporters.
