Support of The Friends of Nikkei Centre Maintenance Fund
The Friends of Nikkei Centre Maintenance Fund was established in 2015 through a generous gift from a friend of the Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre (NNMCC). The investment income earned by the Fund is dedicated to the preservation of NNMCC’s facilities. In 2016, it enabled Nikkei Centre to make vital renovations to the main floor washroom and replace carpets in the main floor hallways.
In 2020, Nikkei Centre will be twenty (20) years old! In light of the current environment of low investment returns and an aging facility, there is a need to increase the Fund.
Double Your Impact!
A generous donor has offered to match all contributions to this Fund up to a maximum of $25,000 by December 15th!
Value this fund brings to the community
• Helps the NNMCC to continue to offer our community programs and services in well-maintained facilities that are safe and secure, for now and future generations to enjoy. It means a healthy contingency is in place for urgent building needs, as they arise due to general building use and age, such as HVAC and water issues, equipment replacement, roofing, and drainage (to name a few).
• Helps generate additional funding for capital improvements and energy efficiency, so the NNMCC can to focus on funding programs and initiatives that further their charitable mission to honour, preserve and share Japanese Canadian history, heritage, art and Japanese culture for a better Canada.
