The Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre of Montreal is entering its 43rd year of operations, serving Montreal’s Nikkei community and the greater Montreal public, providing a variety of cultural, social and service-related programs and activities.
In order for us to continue to offer the same calibre of programming, in a modern, efficient environment, we need your help. We undertook our first Capital Fundraising Campaign in 1993, to purchase our building and subsequently constructed the extension to the building. Since then, we have been fortunate not to have had the need to reach out to our community for their assistance.
During the Spring of 2015, Labrecque Hall underwent a much overdue, major renovation. Cracked, glass window blocks were replaced by energy-efficient glass, old floor tiles and wall coverings containing asbestos were replaced, and an appropriate HVAC system and state-of-the-art, audio-visual system were installed. Since then, we have also replaced a large portion of the roof.
As much as we should continue the modernization of our facilities, particularly in the kitchen area, which is the focal point of many of our fundraising activities, we cannot. With ever-increasing operating costs, elimination of government funding, not to mention the maintenance on a 50 year old building, we are now asking your help to move forward.
Without additional, community support, the Centre is at risk of operating at a deficit, particularly, as costly repairs arise. Obviously, this situation cannot continue for long. Your generosity is key in helping sustain the JCCCM.
We are asking for your help in raising $400,000 over the next 5 years. This amount will ensure an efficient renovation of the kitchen and surrounding areas, as well as provide a cushion for future repairs and operating expenses.
You will receive a receipt for income tax purposes and your donation will be recognized on a plaque which will be created at the end of the fundraising campaign.
Thank you for your commitment to our future!
