Kigyo Mécénat Kyogikai (Association for Corporate Support of the Arts) has decided to develop GBFund into a new form of support fund, which was originally set up to support disaster reconstruction activities through arts and culture in affected areas after the East Japan Great Earthquake on 11 March 2011.
GBFund was initially established with the time limit of ‘continuous support for 5 years’.
However, Japan is a country with much natural disasters that are hard to prevent.
For this reason, the association has decided to continue providing the support through arts and culture,
responding to all disaster-affected areas throughout the country.
GBFund has now changed its name to ‘Disaster Recovery Support Fund through Arts and Culture’.
People not only live in that area, but also live with bonds that are built in the communities.
The earthquake took everything away from them. But arts, culture, and traditions have the power not only to regenerate the community but also to create new.
The association continues to support arts and cultural activities that people who live in affected areas can participate actively and connect the communities again in the future.
We sincerely thank you for your continuous support and cooperation.
Donation Campaign from 6 March to 20 April 2017
