Grants Program

Deadline for 2022-2023 SF Japantown Foundation Recovery Fund Grant has closed. To all of you who submitted applications for this year’s grant, thank you very much. We will now begin the review process.  For those of you who missed the opportunity this year, we hope you will consider applying next year.

This year, the Board of Directors for the Foundation is 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 cancelled our last two annual Osechi Ryori event in January 2021 and 2022 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.
