Gifu International Center also accepts donations to help run projects.

GIC runs projects to- create a multicultural community where people can live together in safety; create a mutual respect of different cultures and ways of thinking; encourage projects run by citizens that promote multiculturalism and international exchange and cooperation; and to create an environment where internationalisation can advance, while increasing the international awareness of the citizens of Gifu Prefecture, as a stronghold of international exchange based in the local community.

In order that we can carry out long term projects on a regular basis in a proactive manner, we need to have a sound financial base. We would be grateful to receive any donations from groups or individuals that support our aims.
