ABOUT CENTRAL COMMUNITY CHEST OF JAPAN

Central Community Chest of Japan (CCCJ), also known as the Red Feather (Akaihane), is one of Japan’s largest nonprofits. Founded in 1947, CCCJ acts as a national coordinating body for local community chests. 

Today, CCCJ strives to become partner-of-choice for corporations and their employees who are keen in making a difference in their communities. District and branch offices nationwide work closely with local community leaders, governments and NGOs, and have improved the lives of 26 million people, including the elderly, disabled, and children.

CCCJ founded the Red Feather Community Impact Fund in 2016. While the purpose of the Red Feather Community Chest Campaign is to solve local social welfare issues, the fund also aims to achieve financial stability nationwide.

HOW WE WORK

CCCJ strives to become partner-of-choice for corporations and their employees who are keen in making a difference in their communities. District and branch offices nationwide work closely with local community leaders, governments and NGOs, and have improved the lives of 26 million people, including the elderly, disabled, and children.

VISION

Japan currently is known all over the world for its low birthrate and aging society. CCCJ envisions a future in which the prospect of safely bringing up children encourages social participation from the next generation and the elimination of societal problems for employees with disabilities. CCCJ also envisions a future in which Japan is more elaborately prepared for disasters, which have been known to create big problems in the area.

MISSION

CCCJ plays a big role in promoting private enterprise welfare work by accepting and effectively utilizing donations in their metropolitan districts. We aim to adjust our private enterprises further through funds and charitable trust in order to broaden our nationwide field of vision to help those in our community.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHT: CHILDREN'S CANTEENS

With Asahi Soft Drinks’ generous donations, 147 canteens have been funded by giving grants to local NPOs and volunteer groups that help run the food stalls. These canteens, which provide nutritional meals to underprivileged children, were established to combat child hunger and poverty across Japan.

 

 

Canteen staff recently organized a surprise for a little girl’s birthday that would otherwise have gone uncelebrated.

Donate to our efforts to support CCCJ in ensuring no child goes hungry.
