Build a Sustainable Future with USJC


Dear Friends,

People often tell me that the U.S.-Japan Council Annual Conference keeps getting better every year. Through the hard work and dedication of many, I’m proud that this year’s event in Tokyo was indeed exceptionally powerful. But this conference, and the many other impactful educational and leadership development programs we have throughout the year, could not happen without your support. This holiday season, we ask that you remember the U.S.-Japan Council in your year-end giving.

For those of you who were not able to join us in Tokyo in November, you were missed. Let me give you a sense of what you would have experienced:


You’d have seen over 700 people gather for our Annual Conference, bringing together an expanding network of U.S.-Japan Council members and supporters from both sides of the Pacific. 

You’d have seen opinion leaders and decision-makers from across the business, government and nonprofit sectors discuss issues and take home concrete steps for collaborations that will strengthen U.S.-Japan ties.

You’d have seen a new generation of emerging leaders speak passionately about identity, the impact of USJC programs on their lives and their ongoing commitment to give back to their communities.

Above all, you would have made connections with people that positively impact you and your work. The U.S.-Japan Council brings together leaders of the United States and Japan from across backgrounds, sectors and generations to partner for a better future for the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.

Your contribution provides direct support for our ongoing programs, like our TOMODACHI Initiative, women’s leadership events and Regional Economic Summits, as well as exciting future projects like our Leadership Institute. Your support will also help us launch our new three-year strategic plan to continue our growth in empowering and connecting leaders toward a stronger U.S.-Japan relationship.
