History & Mission

The Care Fund was created from a gift bequeathed to two dear friends who were greatly supportive of an elderly Japanese woman in her final days of struggling with lung cancer. The two friends realized the need for an organization to support Japanese and Japanese Americans, and they used the gist to establish the Care Fund in 1999, Washington DC.

The Japanese Americans’ Care Fund provides information and support for social needs of Japanese and Japanese Americans. The Care Fund fosters care and growth to create safe, fulfilling, and socially enriching environment for its members and surrounding communities.
