Densho Online Giving Challenge Match

We need your help to support our teacher training and oral history interview programs. The Densho board and staff have pooled resources to create a $20,000 Densho Challenge match for online donations in December. What this means is that every dollar donated online in December will be matched by a dollar from Densho's board and staff. The impact of your online donation gets doubled in December. And if you donate $125 or more, you receive a gift book, The Colors of Confinement, by Eric Muller, or a DVD of the film, A Flicker in Eternity. If you donate $200, you receive both.
