Raise the Paddle for "Capacity Building"

Raise the Paddle 2022: "CLICK" for online donors!    "Raise the paddle" for guests at the Westin! 

The JASSW tradition of "Raise the Paddle" is an opportunity for the community to come together and raise their bid cards (paddles) to help fund our CAPACITY BUILDING!

"Capacity Building" is a concept that NPOs use to continually grow their ability to fulfil their mission to their communities.  It is a long-term sustainable strategy for growth on all levels, including operations, programs, education and finances.

Your commitment and donations will help the Society achieve its Capacity Building goal in several ways:

Education

Helping our signature program, JIS&AIS, maintain its established excellence by training dedicated volunteers with passion for introducing Japanese & English language, culture and history in Japan and Washington State.

General

Enabling the Society office to update equipment, train staff and offer a competitive wage so that we can attract new, highly-qualified staff.

Future

Supporting the Society's evolving mission as it enters a new century as it launches new programs centered around the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
