The mission of the JCCC Foundation grants program is to support innovative projects that work with students to enhance learning, build capacity, and increase learning opportunities both inside and outside the school. We look for programs and projects that convert educational theory into concrete actions that foster personal initiative, development of adult values, and development of higher-order thinking skills and real-life problem solving.
Each year, the Foundation awards approximately $100,000 in grants of up to $10,000 to schools and non-profit organizations that provide education-related programming. These grants are known as Student Development and Achievement Grants, Japanese Language Education Grants, and U.S.-Japan Partnership Grants.
The proposals must be delivered by mail or personal delivery to the JCCC Foundation by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, June 23, 2023.
Applications postmarked on June 23 will be accepted.
To date, the JCCC Foundation has contributed a grand total of $5,965,188.92 in grant funds to many different Chicago area, domestic and international organizations.
