Event Details

Don't forget to help spread the word so all your friends are able to claim their FY 16-17 voting right!

The deadline to donate is November 15, 2016.  All donations received after the deadline will not be guaranteed a match.  All donations accepted before the deadline through Eventbrite qualify for an ongoing match program, but will not be tax deductible (an acknowledgement letter will not be sent) for the individual donor.  This means that the earlier we receive your donation, the more chances it will qualify for multiple matches from major donors, foundations, and corporations.  Your $25 donation could turn into $50, $75, or even $100!  However, if you wish to receive a tax deduction, but would NOT like to qualify for a match, please donate by clicking here instead.

If you are a corporation, foundation or major donor who is interested in providing a match for your region's fundraising efforts, or the statewide funding pool, please email us.  All donations made by matching donors are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

For more information or questions, please email NGNF or visit us on Facebook.

New Generation Nikkei Fund

New Generation Nikkei Fund is a giving circle comprised of members looking to meet a statewide need to build a new generation of donors for Japantown organizations.

Envisioned by the next generation of stakeholders of the Japanese American community, the New Generation Nikkei Fund (NGNF) strives to:

...foster a culture of giving and volunteerism amongst Japanese American and Asian American young professionals

...enhance collaboration and communication amongst Japantowns and existing Nikkei communities at large Japantown or Nikkei community based organizations with a grant(s) and a new generation of donors

NGNF is a member of the AAPIP National Giving Circle Network and is fiscally hosted by the Tides Foundation.

50% of NGNF funds to be decided by Donor votes:

Donors who give a minimum of $25 or more (“Donor(s)”) qualify for one vote at one time for the funding cycle. Qualifying donors can vote on one project from the Shortlist which will be determined by the 9 Members in December. Other than meeting the $25 minimum, the right to vote is not tied to donation amount; all donors are allowed one vote each. 

Cash donations preferred; credit card donations available soon

Remaining 50% to Members’ Decision-Making:

All 9 Members are required to attend an allocation meeting to discuss and review applications in detail to determine the recipient of the remaining 50% of NGNF funds. All allocation decisions are consensus-based. Should a 100% agreement not be achieved after initial deliberation, a supermajority of 80% of the 9 Members will be used. Project applications will be evaluated based on the overall quality of the application, alignment of the project with NGNF’s mission, justification of budget, and originality in video presentation. To avoid conflict of interest, NGNF Members affiliated with applicant organizations are required to recuse themselves from discussions as necessary.

2014-2015 NGNF Members:

Lost Angeles - Kim Kawasaki, Sean Miura, Stacy Toyota
San Jose - Ellen Kamei, Matt Ogawa, Tamiko Rast
San Francisco - Aya Ino, Haruka Roudebush, Kiyomi Tanaka

OUR FOCUS/PRIORITY for 2014-2015

NGNF will seek out Japantown-based organizations that engage in projects that are innovative and/or non-traditional, with respect to the needs, interests, and capacities of organizations. The scope of “Japantown-based organizations” comports with landmarked, historically preserved areas. There are currently three Japantowns in California, in San Francisco, San Jose, and in Los Angeles.


Eligible organizations will apply following the announcement for applications in November. The application is two parts: (1) a brief overview of the organization, project (not to exceed two pages), budget and (2) a one-minute, smart-phone recorded video that has not been professionally edited explaining funding needs for the project.

Funded organizations are chosen by the following process: 1) the primary decision made by Donors’ votes, which guarantees the top organization(s) 50% of NGNF funds and 2) the remaining 50% of funds will be left to the decision-making of the 9 Members.

Funded organization(s) will receive 50% of NGNF funds (or amount requested on application) and a listing of NGNF donors from the funding cycle.
