The Japanese Disaster Relief Fund Boston - JDRFB

The Japanese Disaster Relief Fund Boston - JDRFB

The Japanese Disaster Relief Fund – Boston (JDRFB) was created as a local vehicle for giving to aid those affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Launched with a leadership gift of $100,000 from the Fish Family Foundation, the JDRFB has grown to include The Boston Foundation and The Japan Society of Boston. This unique collaboration, marked by expertise in grant making and networks on the ground in Japan, is positioned to make direct impact grants to organizations and communities in Tohoku. All administrative costs of the fund are covered by the Fish Family Foundation, including on-the-ground needs assessment and due diligence in Japan. This means 100% of the money raised in this fund will directly benefit organizations on the ground, poised to help Japan. The fund is administered and overseen by an Advisory Committee comprised of representatives from each collaborating foundation, as well as representatives from the business, philanthropic, and academic community of Boston, all with strong ties to Japan. JDRFB benefits from the generous support of organizations such as The Japanese Association of Greater Boston and other donors.
