The Janet Aiko Sekiguchi Foundation

Honoring Janet's legacy by investing in communities and causes consistent with her passions and her struggles.

The Janet Aiko Sekiguchi GRANT

We are currently in the process of selecting school communities whose missions align with ours, and we invite you to apply for a grant. The grant is for a maximum amount of $10,000 per school year for a total of 3 years. The funds may be used to support one school-wide program, a few smaller projects initiated by school staff or students, or a combination of both. (Note: You do not need to apply for the full amount available, as we will consider awarding multiple grants for proposals from several schools, up to a total of $10,000). We would love to see students involved in generating and implementing ideas under the guidance of a teacher or other staff member. Grant funds may also be used to enhance an existing program. We envision our grant serving as seed funding for either new programs or an expansion of a current program at your school, with the aim of enabling you to attract additional sources of funding.
