Midori Kai is a non-profit corporation established in 1996, and founded with the objective to create an effective organization comprised of Japanese American professional women leaders with various business and creative backgrounds, who are committed to community involvement, supporting local charities, mentoring youth, and celebrating our Japanese American heritage.
The annual Midori Kai Boutique is our primary — and often singular — fundraiser. As a non-profit corporation, Midori Kai, Inc. 100% of the proceeds go to the Midori Kai Foundation for Grant Recipients, and each year, at our boutique, our generous vendors contribute 10% of their gross sales to Midori Kai, Inc. A portion of the boutique proceeds are donated to selected non-profit organizations for a two-year period.
What is the meaning of Midori Kai?
On November 12, 1996, founding Directors approached Reverend Bunyu Fujimura, Reverend Ejitsu Hojo and Reverend Junjo Tsumura, retired ministers, requesting possible names for our newly formed organization. They suggested Midori Kai. In Japanese, Midori translates to “evergreen”or “everlasting” and Kai means “organization.” Our founding Directors agreed this name was very fitting for the new organization.
Please join us for the 2023 Midori Kai Live Outdoors Arts & Craft Boutique which will be held on Saturday, September 9, 2023 from 9:30am to 4pm.
