Announcing the 1,000 Cranes Campaign

In Japanese folklore, it is said that if you fold 1,000 origami cranes (千羽鶴, senbazuru) your wish will come true.

The 1,000 Cranes Campaign will help fulfill our community’s wish of building a world-class Japanese Garden.

Be a part of The Crane Community by committing to a $1,000 annual donation. Donors at this level will be invited to The Crane Community Celebration this fall, where you can fold a paper crane to be included in a special work of art.

Update: We reached our match goal! You can still be a part of the Crane Community by committing to a $1,000 annual donation before October 1, 2023.
