Dear Editor,

As co-chairs of the Legacy Fund Grants Committee, Roberta Barton and I would like to remind our JACL districts and chapters that there is still time to submit your applications for the 2020 LFG Program awards. The deadline for applications is April 9.

Please go to the JACL website at to download an application and view the requirements for an LFG award (click on the “Social Justice” tab to see the link to the LFG program).

This is a popular program for chapters and districts that wish to apply for grants of up to $5,000 to help fund new programs that address the goals of the JACL’s Program for Action. This year, over $80,000 is available for LFG awards.

The JACL Legacy Fund was started in the early 1990s with the goal of providing funding to implement the JACL’s mission as expressed through its Program for Action. Each year, 15 percent of the proceeds of the fund are set aside for that purpose. We encourage your chapter and/or district to apply.


Toshi Abe
Co-Chair, LFG Committee
