Help TCA Expand Our Impact

Your support is the sustaining force that makes our work possible, whether it is providing tools to amplify, uplift, and strengthen the taiko community, or creating a safety net to support artists in times of crisis. TCA’s members and donors provide the financial footing that allows us to act.

Please help ensure that TCA can continue to empower the people and advance the art of taiko by making a gift today.

The Taiko Community Alliance is a 501(c)(3) organization; all contributions are tax-deductible for US taxpayers to the full extent of the law.

Does your employer offer a Corporate Volunteer Program or Corporate Matching Program?

Many Corporate Volunteer Programs make a contribution to an organization that their employee is volunteering for based on the number of reported volunteer hours. Learn more about this type of program through this video breakdown, and reach out to TCA Business Manager Courtney Ozaki (courtney@taikocommunityalliance.org) if you're ready to get started!

Interested in making your donation to TCA go even further? Learn about Corporate Matching Programs in this video and see if your employer will support TCA by matching your donation.
