In the spirit of the peace and joy, please join other Society members in making a financial contribution to help fund the important work of The Japan-America Society of Georgia. It is through education, mutual respect and understanding that our world will become a better place to live. What better way to help this happen than supporting an organization whose mission is to help foster that respect and understanding.
No contribution is too small, and we can assure you that your tax-deductible donation will be put to good use in the coming year and beyond. If you would like to designate a gift in honor of a friend, client or family member, we would be happy to acknowledge your gift in our Society newsletter and, if you like, to advise the person honored of your kindness. You may wish to check to see if your employer matches your contributions to charitable organizations such as our own.
While the Society has made significant contributions to the Atlanta and Georgia community in the past, there is more we can do, but we need your help to accomplish our important goals.
