Join Lynn’s Legacy of Service

Become a part of Lynn’s legacy of dedication and service by making a donation in her honor.

During her decade in leadership at the Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center and now the Japanese American Museum of Oregon, Lynn demonstrated vision, resilience, and a deep commitment to our mission and the communities we serve.  Foremost among the many achievements is our current Museum home opened in May 2021.  A donation to this fund will ensure that Lynn’s values and legacy continue to guide the museum into the future.  

Make a gift in Lynn’s honor to the Japanese American Museum of Oregon’s Lynn Fuchigami Parks Fund today at the link below.

Alternatively, checks made out to the Japanese American Museum of Oregon can be mailed to 411 NW Flanders St, Suite 100, Portland, OR 97209 with a memo line that says, “Lynn Fuchigami Parks Fund.” We will also be able to accept checks and credit cards on-site at the November 20 event.
