Resilience Fundraiser Campaign

April 1, 2020 - January 22, 2021

Thank you to all our supporters for giving to our Resilience Fundraiser campaign, and believing in our cause. The coronavirus pandemic brought unprecedented challenges to our organization in 2020, however through resilience, resourcefulness and the generosity of our campaign donors, the Nikkei Centre persevered through the year, and found new ways to remain operational and serve the community. We were guided by the Japanese proverb "The bamboo that bends is stronger than the oak that resists".

Our campaign supporters have helped ensure we can continue to fulfill our mission to honour, preserve and share Japanese culture and Japanese Canadian history and heritage for a better Canada. Between April 1, 2020 - January 22, 2021, $306,501.23 was raised for essential operational funding of the NNMCC.

Thank you to our donors for supporting Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre!
