JASM Fundraising Event 2016

“During the last month of my program in Japan I’m going to do the most I can, see as much as I’m able to, and continue making memories that will last a lifetime.” —Maly Thao, 2015 Mondale Scholarship recipient 

“I’m so thankful for having had this opportunity, and I can’t thank JASM and the sponsors enough for helping provide this influential event every year.” — Taylor Nelson, 2015 J-Quiz winner

JASM needs your help!

It has been very exciting for the Japan America Society of Minnesota.  The organization has been doing our best to provide opportunities to Minnesota to connect with Japan for the past 40 years.

This year, 2016, we have had wonderful events, such as the J-Quiz 2016 event in which 95 students from 12 schools competed for the top honors to go to Washington D.C. In June we had a beautiful showing at Harukaze 2016 at Sundin Hall on Hamline University’s campus. We have the exciting Lantern Lighting Festival at Como Zoo coming this August. Then ending the year with Shinnenkai bringing the sights, tastes, and sounds of Japanese New Year.

You can help, and continue to make these JASM events possible.

JASM embarked on a major fundraising initiative to build a future that will expand the programs of the Society, reach new audiences, and contribute to the future of the U.S. – Japan relationship building in Minnesota.  For JASM to thrive more in the future, we need your help. Please consider making a donation to JASM. You can contact us by phone at612-627-9357 or make your donation online anytime during the month of July.

We are designating, July 11th-17th, 2016 as “JASM Fundraising Week” with a fundraising goal of $5,000.
