Excerpt from JCYC Up Close Spring 2019 JCYC is ramping up for its second annual Founder’s Day Campaign to commemorate our inception on May 27, 1970! Since being founded 49 year ago, JCYC is proud to remain at the forefront as a leading child and youth development services provider in San Francisco and now San Mateo County. We are very fortunate for the generous support we have received year after year from individual donors, public sector institutions, and private sector organizations who believe in our mission. This support provides us with the financial bandwidth to continue serving and shaping our society’s future leaders for years to come. This year, our Founder’s Day Campaign contributions will go towards our Nikkei Community Internship (NCI), a Leadership Development program of JCYC. Since NCI’s inception in 2002, the program has provided an invaluable experience for over 100 college students who have a desire to learn more about and become actively involved in the Japanese American community. NCI is now a highly sought after leadership development opportunity for college students throughout California’s three Japantowns in San Francisco, San Jose, and Los Angeles, and is critical to the development of future leaders within the Nikkei community. Below is a reminder on the 4 ways you can give to this campaign: 1. Designate a matching gift: For the many businesses that now offer to match the contributions of employees, we’d like you to look out for these valuable opportunities to double or sometimes even triple your charitable contribution to JCYC. 2. Make a payroll deduction from your employer: Some employers also allow employees to deduct charitable contributions directly from their paycheck. Please also look out for these opportunities at your workplace. 3. Consider a planned gift: JCYC has been the beneficiary of many planned or estate gifts. There are many ways of making a planned gift and some are relatively simple. When preparing an estate plan, please consider JCYC and definitely let us know about it! 4. Finally, you can always simply make a direct donation. We like those as well! For more information on how to participate in JCYC’s second annual Founder’s Day, please contact Tony Jenks at tjenks@jcyc.org or (415) 202-7946.
