About

PRESERVING OUR JAPANESE HERITAGE

The mission of the Sakura Foundation is to sustain the Tri-State/Denver Buddhist Temple and celebrate Japanese-American heritage, culture and community. The non-profit foundation was established in 2014 as a result of the re-organization of the Tri-State Buddhist Church Apartments, Inc. and Sakura Square. True to its charitable mission, it is committed to preserving our Japanese heritage and culture by supporting the community through programs, events, grants and scholarships.

HERITAGE

We remember and honor the hard work and dedication of those who built our community

CULTURE

Our Japanese-American culture permeates our intentions, events and programming.

COMMUNITY

Our commitment to enhancing and embracing our community is steadfast.
