The Sponsorship Program, established in 1995, has been instrumental in expanding the Center’s activities and guaranteeing their long-term financial support.  The companies listed below give to the Center on an annual basis.  The Center also greatly appreciates and benefits from the income derived from the endowments generously funded by Fuji Xerox Co., Ltd, Sanken Industrial Policy Research Institute, The Federation of Bankers Association, The Security Dealers Association, The Life Insurance Association, The Marine and Fire Insurance Association, and Mitsubishi UFJ Trust & Banking Corporation during the first years of the Center’s establishment at Columbia Business School.  The Sponsorship Program will be expanded; inquiries are welcome.  Japanese corporations may receive tax-exempt treatment of their contributions through the arrangements of the Center on Japanese Economy and Business with the Council for Better Corporate Citizenship of Keidanren.
