On March 11, 2011, Japan’s Tohoku coastal region was devastated by a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami. The months after these disasters brought to the forefront incredible stories of resilience and generosity as Japan quickly began recovery efforts.
Japan’s recovery is expected to take five years or more. With this in mind, Japan Society is working to gauge the long-term needs of those affected by the disaster with the goal of supporting organizations that will contribute to longer term recovery and reconstruction. As long as individuals, corporations and foundations show interest in supporting the longer term recovery and reconstruction process in Japan, Japan Society will keep the Japan Earthquake Relief Fund open for contributions. As we have seen in the past in places like the Gulf Coast, among other places, the need is great not just in the immediate aftermath of a disaster, but also in the longer term recovery and reconstruction process.
One hundred percent of your tax-deductible contributions to the Japan Earthquake Relief Fund go to organizations that directly help victims of the March 11th disaster.
