Nissan Foundation and the JANM
This Nissan Foundation has been a proud supporter of the Japanese American National Museum (JANM) for nearly 20 years. JANM is a national repository of Japanese American history, it creates groundbreaking historical and arts exhibitions, educational public programs, award-winning documentaries, and innovative curriculum that illuminate the stories and the rich cultural heritage of people of Japanese ancestry in the United States.
For nearly 20 years, the Nissan Foundation has awarded the JANM grants to help fund its School Visits Program and Family Festivals. Typically, approximately 15,000 1st-12th graders visit annually.
The Nissan Foundation is proud to support JANM and further its mission to promote understanding and appreciation of America’s ethnic and cultural diversity by sharing the Japanese American experience.
