Funding & Contribution

Our Funding & Way to Give


To fund its operations, JASSI relies on government and foundation grants; corporate funds; donations from individuals, corporations, and other organizations; and support from JASSI’s corporate “Tomo no Kai” (Friends of JASSI) members. JASSI’s Caregiver Support Program, subcontracted with the Hamilton-Madison House, is funded by the New York City Department for the Aging. JASSI also regularly hosts fundraising events such as seminars and annual gala to help cover the expenses.


JASSI’s all services are provided free of charge in order for low-income individuals and families to receive help from us. Your contribution is always welcome. If you would like to support JASSI and its programs, you may contribute by sending in a check or making a secure online donation. All of the contributions to JASSI are tax-deductible. JASSI has been designated as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization by the Internal Revenue Service.

Matching Gifts

Double your donation!

Many companies offer matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even triple the amount of your gift. A corporate matching gift is an easy way to double or even triple the impact of your personal gift to JASSI.

If your employer requires an Employer Identification Number (EIN), please use 13-3093059.

How do I make a matching gift?

1. Ask your HR department about your company’s matching gift policy.
2. If your company participates, obtain a matching gift form and complete the employee portion. If your company processes matching gifts electronically, follow their instructions.
3. Mail the completed form along with your personal donation to:

100 Gold Street, Lower Level
New York, NY 10038

AmazonSmile Program
You can also support JASSI by shopping. The AmazonSmile program automatically donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to JASSI when you shop at AmazonSmile! *AmazonSmile is the “same” with the same products, prices, and service.
