Our Non Profit
The Japanese Cultural Center,Tea House, and Gardens of Saginaw, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is proud to implement our mission.
Volunteers are always needed to care for our gardens. You can adopt a particular garden element as your own.
We offer occasional classes in traditional Japanese arts. In addition to language tutoring, you can learn origami (paper folding), bonsai (nurturing dwarfed plants), and calligraphy (Japanese script as a fine art).
Our work is utterly dependent on the gracious giving of donors.
Also, keep us in mind in your estate planning. We honor the traditional virtue of longevity and our endowment fund will nurture us for another fifty or hundred years.
