Nipponkoa Grant Program
In FY2004, the Nipponkoa Grant Program was initiated in partnership with Nipponkoa Insurance Company, through its Grant Club, which promotes and matches employee giving. Grants are made annually to Japanese nonprofit organizations working in the fields of international exchange and cooperation involving other Asian countries, education, and women's issues, and JCIE managed the planning, operations, and selection process for the program. The program not only aims to make corporate grants to nonprofit organizations but also promotes collaboration between nonprofit organizations and corporations. In FY2006, grants were made to six organizations around the country including, for example, a shelter in Kanagawa that supports victims of domestic violence, and two additional grants were made in FY2007.
