Help us reach our $50,000 fundraising goal by Fred Korematsu Day! Here are three reasons to support our education program this year:
- Our kits just got cheaper: Last year's inaugural kits cost us $40 to produce and distribute. This year, we've streamlined our kits so that we can get them to classrooms for only $20!
- Your donation can be matched: Your donation is eligible to receive a 100% dollar-for-dollar match from a challenge grant the Asian Law Caucus (our parent organization) has received!
- We have even cooler gifts this year:
Donate $20 to help send 1 Korematsu teaching kit to a classroom.
Donate $100 to send 5 teaching kits and receive the Korematsu Institute's Asian American and Pacific Islander Civil Rights 2012 wall calendar! With 12 months of incredible images and 65 significant dates (ie when was the first Asian American Heritage Week? What day did the SF State Ethnic Studies strike end?), you'll be reminded throughout the year of the challenges and triumphs that brought us to where we are today.

Cy Pres Awards
The Korematsu Institute at the Asian Law Caucus is an appropriate recipient of Cy Pres funds because our core mission is to promote education on civil rights issues.
Cy Pres is a doctrine and practice of distributing unclaimed class action funds to programs that have a nexus to the underlying purpose of the litigation. In class action lawsuits, if there is to be a payment of damages to class members, a fund is created. After class members' claims are paid, there is often an amount remaining. Judges and class counsel can recommend that these residual funds be distributed to the "next best" use.
By directing Cy Pres and other court awards to the Korematsu Institute at the Asian Law Caucus – including court-approved settlements, sanction awards and criminal restitution –the courts and attorneys can fund educational programs that help safeguard the civil rights of all.
The Korematsu Institute received its first Cy Pres award, from Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy, in 2010. It has enabled our organization to expand our programs and further spread Korematsu's legacy in order to protect individuals whose civil liberties are being threatened today.
