|We at the Japan Policy Research Institute (JPRI) at the University of San Francisco Center for the Pacific Rim are saddened by the tragic consequences of the earthquake and tsunami that struck the northern coast of Japan on March 11th, but also heartened to see that the Japanese people are responding with great courage, dignity, and resilience.
To help fund the emergency response and the long-term recovery efforts that will be needed to rebuild damaged communities, JPRI announces the creation of the JPRI Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund. Donations to the Fund from JPRI’s friends will go to organizations in Japan supporting the relief and recovery efforts that are now being identified by our partners at Give2Asia. Please download this page for more information on the specific work that will be funded by your donations.
The Japan Policy Research Institute, which was founded in 1994 by renowned scholar and public intellectual Dr. Chalmers Johnson, is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to policy research and public education on Japan’s role in the Pacific Rim and beyond. Since 2009 JPRI has been based at University of San Francisco Center for the Pacific Rim.
