Specified Non-Profit Organization (NPO) Kanagawa Children's Future Fund

It is thought that one in every seven children in Japan lives in poverty. Meanwhile, in recent years there have been numerous reports of child abuse leading to death. The number of cases of such abuse as well as children that are unable to attend school and those in day-care centers ranks highly when it comes to Kanagawa Prefecture.
Against this backdrop, Kanagawa Children’s Future Fund places great importance on strengthening ties with people that offer support to children and adolescents facing tough circumstances.
Kanagawa Children’s Future Fund collects donations from individuals, corporations and other groups and provides financial assistance to civic action groups that support people working with children and adolescents and in the field of child rearing.
We all have the power to help children in our midst that have lost the sparkle in their lives by donating to Kanagawa Children’s Future Fund.

Objectives of the Fund
Kanagawa Children’s Future Fund is a citizens’ fund aimed at supporting the upbringing and development of children and adolescents through societal assistance.
The donations we collect are used to protect the lives of children and adolescents. To this end, we invest in activities that provide children with the strength to live and cultivate diverse capabilities. Our aim is to create a regional community that takes pride and joy in its children.

Key Business Activities 
1. Collect donations and other contributions and develop and implement fundraising programs
2. Provide financial assistance and operational support to NPO activities
3. Provide information related to activities supporting children, adolescents and child rearing in Kanagawa Prefecture

History of the Children’s Fund
Kanagawa Children’s Future Fund received official NPO status in April 2003 following preparations that began in April 2001, primarily based around groups supporting the upbringing and rearing of children and adolescents in Kanagawa Prefecture as well as the NPO support structure Kanagawa Information Center for Citizen’s Activities. We have been providing aid via donations since 2004.

Kanagawa Children’s Future Fund became a Specified Non-Profit Organization in April 2007, thereby enabling tax credits for donations.
