Social Isolation – A Growing Epidemic
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.
Focusing on our community’s most vulnerable and highest-needs populations, Keiro’s Grants Programs has invested in more than 50 organizations through program development, capital improvements, capacity building, and core operating support. Grant proposals are evaluated by an independent review committee comprised of members of theJapanese American and Japanese community with experience in business, nonprofits, and health care.
