We have an ongoing fundraising campaign soliciting contributions from individuals, foundations, and companies. Our largest expense each year is the fellowships we provide to help sponsor a group of participants to the Peace and Reconciliation Asia Study Tour. The target participants are:
- High school/middle school/college teachers/educators
- Reporters/journalists, film makers, lawyers, other professionals
- Community leaders, activists
The Asia Study Tour is an intensive two-week immersion program to enhance the participants’ understanding of the historical, cultural, and political background of the Asian countries during the Asia-Pacific War 1931-1945. More information about the Asia Study Tour can be found in the “Study Tour” page.
The donations are also used to support a variety of programs that NJ-ALPHA sponsors each year for our schools and our communities. The services of all NJ-ALPHA officers are donated.
We especially encourage donors to seek matching contributions from their employers via programs such as United Way.
We have received donations from many people, and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts. A contribution of $3,000 will sponsor one participant for the Asia Study Tour, and the donor can name a fellowship to honor a person or an organization of the donor’s choice for one year. If one contributes $15,000, then the donor can name a fellowship to honor a person or an organization of the donor’s choice for five years. For the 2017 Asia Study Tour, NJ-ALPHA would like to sponsor 15 participants, and that alone would require $45,000.
We have the following categories of donors:
- Benefactors: $15,000 or more
- Sponsors: $3,000 – $14,999
- Diamond Donors: $1,000 – $2,999
- Platinum Donors: $500 – $999
- Gold Donors: $300 – $499
- Silver Donors: $100 – $299
- Bronze Donors: Any amount up to $99
A receipt will be sent whenever a donation is received.
