The JACL Legacy Fund Grants Committee is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for 2021 Legacy Fund grants. LFG Co-Chairs Roberta Barton and Toshi Abe encourage JACL chapters in good standing and JACL District Councils to apply. This year, the maximum grant award is $6,000.
Legacy Fund grants will be awarded for projects and activities that support the mission of JACL and are supportive of the National JACL Strategic Plan.
Instructions and application forms can be downloaded from JACL’s website here.
The Legacy Fund was established by the JACL National Council at the 1990 JACL National Convention in San Diego. Much of the original funds were donated by JACL members who gave portions of their redress awards to further the legacy of the JACL. Each year, a portion of the earnings from the Legacy Fund Endowment provides the funds to run the LFG program.
For questions or additional information, please contact Roberta Barton (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Toshi Abe (email@example.com). Completed application submissions are due by May 1. Grant award recipients will be announced at this year’s upcoming JACL National Convention.
