Calligraphy from Chiyo Sanada
The last 100 years have seen tremendous turmoil and change. Through it all, Japan-America Society of the State of Washington has been a beacon of hope, friendship and understanding between the people of Washington State and Japan. As the Society Builds Bridges to the Next Century, it looks forward to finding new ways to fulfill its mission and remain relevant in an ever-changing world.
Strong bridges are built by many people working together, united by a common goal. For the next century, the Society will build new bridges by increasing its presence in Washington State and Japan, expanding its membership base, creating a special fund for centennial celebrations, and inspiring board members to lean in and be involved throughout the centennial year.
In this centennial year, it is especially important to give extra financial support to enable the Society to set the tone for a new century of service.
Sponsors and supporters to our Centennial Fund will become a permanent addition to our website. You will be recognized on a special Centennial page for your contributions and can include any personal or corporate messages.
