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.

CULTURE

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