Future Nikkei: Be Part of Our Story

Our Stories. Our Community. Our Future.

The Foundation is focused on Shaping, Planning, and Connecting Nikkei. Together with our partners at the Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre and the Nikkei Seniors Health Care & Housing Society, we are planning for the future and the people we serve. We continue to invest in young Nikkei with our Nikkei Youth Athletics Bursary, and soon, new grant opportunities for students. We are planning for the future and the people we serve with our Nikkei Place Endowment Fund, so that our story continues to be heard. With your help, we can continue to connect Nikkei with people, ideas, resources, and opportunities, so that our community can continue to thrive.

We are grateful for your commitment to Nikkei Place and humbly request you consider making a gift today. Thank you!

What does the future of Nikkei look like?

As a Foundation, we are thinking about the future of our community and the people we serve. It was only 75 years ago that Japanese Canadians were uprooted from their homes and forcibly interned. This tragic history reminds us to reflect upon our past and look forward – to envision and plan for the future of our community and the people we serve. How will our community grow and change in the next 75 years?

Over the next few months, we will be sharing stories from our community about the future they envision. We encourage you to join the conversation on social media with #MyStory and #FutureNikkei or submit your story to gifts@nikkeiplace.org!
