The JA Community Foundation is a nonprofit private foundation focused on providing support to nonprofit organizations serving the Japanese-American and greater Asian-American communities in California.
To that end, the foundation is inviting applications for its large and multiyear grants program. Through the program, grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded in support of new projects or for improvements to existing programs with the potential to benefit Japanese-American seniors in the state. The foundation will give first priority to organizations that address senior health and social services and secondary priority to arts and culture programs.
Organizations may apply for one-time or multiyear grants. For one-time grants, grantees may reapply for a new project if demonstrative goals are achieved. Multiyear grants are contingent on submitted project budgets and are determined on a case-by-case basis. Current grantees may not reapply for funding while a current grant is open.
To be eligible, applicants must be tax exempt as defined by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and serve residents of California.
See the JA Community Foundation for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
