The Grants Program enables Keiro to advance its mission of enhancing the quality of senior life in our community by providing support for new and ongoing programs. Grantmaking allows Keiro to extend its resources by investing in local organizations and agencies providing services to Japanese American and Japanese older adults in Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura counties.
Since its inception in 2016, the Keiro Grants Program has supported more than 50 organizations that work closely with our community’s most vulnerable and highest-needs population. Grant proposals are evaluated by an independent review committee comprised of members of the Japanese American and Japanese community with experience in business, nonprofits, and health care.
