|About the Fund|
The Chamber established the J.C.C. Fund in 1985 in order to create a unified philanthropic vehicle for the Japanese business community to contribute to and strengthen ties with the New York metropolitan area. A nonprofit 501(c)3 philanthropic organization, the J.C.C. Fund serves as the philanthropic arm of the Chamber. Proceeds from JCCI's Annual Dinner and San-Betsu Charity Golf Tournament generate funding for the J.C.C. Fund.
