From Shige Higashi, Cultural News Editor

Amid COVID-19 outbreak, we had to suspend publishing Monthly Cultural News due to all Japanese cultural events were suspended at cultural centers and art museums in Southern California.

Since June, we started publishing Weekly Cultural News as substitute for the monthly publication.

Cultural News has been depended on subscription incomes and we face financial difficulties now because monthly subscriptions are stopped.

We need $30,000 fund right away to continue current projects including Weekly Cultural News in 2020- 2021. We have raised $8,500 as of the end of September. Your continuous supports are appreciated via https://culturalnews.com/donation

If you may have any questions about our projects and donation campaign, please contact Cultural News Editor Shige Higashi via: higashi@culturalnews.com or  (213) 819-4100.
