A LONG TRADITION OF GIVING
Since its founding in 1920 in order to support the construction of a new college campus for Kobe College in Nishinomiya City, KCC-JEE has achieved many different international outreach projects and carried on the spirit of fellowship and humanism inherent in our Congregational roots. The secret of this foundation's longetivy is meaningful personal connections, a strong belief in our mission of cross-cultural exchange and education, and a strong belief in the potential of the young women and men whom we serve with our programs.
If you have been touched by KCC-JEE's programs, or if you simply believe in cross-cultural connections between America and Japan, please consider making a gift that is within your means. Your money will go toward supporting our six programs, or you can earmark your gift for the program most important to you.
We deeply appreciate your support, and encourage you to become part of the KCC-JEE family.
KOBE COLLEGE PRESIDENT CHARLOTTE B. DEFOREST AND A VERY SPECIAL ACT OF GIVING
Charlotte B. DeForest, President of Kobe College from 1917-1940, was tireless in her love and service to Japan and its people. During World War II, DeForest had to leave Japan, but Japan remained always in her heart. She volunteered as a counselor at the Manzanar Relocation Center, a Japanese internment camp in California, 1941-45. Dr. DeForest did what she could to improve the situation of Japanese Americans unjustly detained at Manzanar, and stayed at the camp to help with relocation until the very end. Dr. DeForest is an inspiration to us all.
