Aiming for Alliances Based on Diverse Collaboration ~Creating Opportunities to Evolve and Deepen Grant Foundations and Grant Projects~

In recent years, the environment surrounding grant foundations has brought about major changes, such as the establishment of a 10 trillion yen university fund, a new system to support higher education, and the use of dormant deposits to provide funds. In addition, Mr. Masakazu Tokura, chairman of Nippon Keidanren (Japan Business Federation), spoke at a conference on the realization of a new capitalism based on the “Grand Design and Implementation Plan for New Capitalism” and the “Basic Policy 2022.” ”, an expert meeting was held on the modalities of the public interest corporation system in the new era, and an interim report was published on December 26, 2022. This review of the public interest corporation system will have a great impact on future public interest activities by the private sector. As a trustworthy subsidy foundation, we are entering an era in which new initiatives are required in order to develop subsidy activities aimed at the development of a better society. Through the theme of “alliance based on diverse collaborations,” the grant foundation grasps the changes in systems and trends, and how to overcome and demonstrate individuality. We aim to be a forum where you can find help leading to creation. We hope that many people will deepen their understanding of the activities of the Foundation through this forum.
