Kuraray Foundation of America, Inc. will consider charitable contributions to eligible non-profit organizations and academic institutions with priority consideration given to organizations serving in or near U.S. communities where Kuraray Group companies have a major presence.

As we believe that leveraging our financial contributions with the volunteer talents of our employees leads to stronger, more vibrant relationships in the surrounding communities, we give preference to projects that include employee involvement.

  • Individuals (excluding disaster relief funding)
  • Private foundations
  • Personal trusts
  • Donor-advised funds
  • Capital campaigns
  • Endowment funds
  • Political organizations
  • Religious organizations that do not serve the general public on a non-denominational basis
  • Organizations that do not comply with the USA Patriot Act
