About the Relief Fund

The Northern Japan Earthquake Relief Fund was established to help the victims of the Great Tohoko Earthquake and Tsunami which took place on March 11, 2011.  Our relief campaign is a community based and volunteer driven effort. 100% of the donations received are going directly to citizen relief efforts that are actively on the ground providing support to the victims through the National YMCAs of Japan and other Non-Governmental Organizations that the JCCCNC has very long relationships with since the 1995 Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake centered in Kobe. The funds will focus on supporting the victims and those who need it most but are often forgotten: the elderly, children, the physically and mentally challenged and the migrant communities.

The Northern Japan Earthquake Relief Fund is a three-fold plan over the next several months. 

RELIEF - Meeting immediate life saving and survival needs.  

RECOVERY - Creating sustainability, temporary shelters and housing needs, Post Traumatic Stress counseling, supplies for children, families and seniors. 

REBUILDING - Supporting community and neighborhood capital and improvement projects and programs. 

Although the JCCCNC and its partners are taking no administrative fees, the credit card companies and the processing companies are taking their normal fees ranging from 4.8% to 9.7%. Unfortunately we have no control over these other entities and the fees are taken out prior to the JCCCNC receiving the donations, so that is why we state that 100% of the donations received will go toward relief efforts.

In 1995, the JCCCNC raised over $600,000 towards citizen relief efforts for the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake (Kobe) that killed over 6,000 people and left over 300,000 people homeless. The donations received helped organize volunteer efforts to get food and water directly to the victims, citizen search efforts, clothing for those who lost their homes, essential supplies for women, children, especially seniors, and we helped to feed and rebuild orphanages in Kobe. The JCCCNC has continued to bring youth from the San Francisco Bay Area to volunteer and donate to the orphanage every year since 1995.
