Help support GESCA by becoming a member
We rely on additional donations to keep our programs vibrant. For example, you can provide a full or partial ($200) scholarship to help a needy student go to Japan as an exchange student. Or you can direct your donation to support cultural events. Membership dues and donations are tax deductible as we are a 501(c)(3) organization. A receipt and our tax ID will be mailed to you once we receive your donation. Donations are accepted all year long.
We welcome new members of all ages, at any time. Members can be as active or inactive as they wish. Membership dues help us run our organization, including our two “buckets” of outreach: 1) an on-going high school exchange program with our sister city in Japan, and 2) regular Japanese cultural events. Our dues are as follows:
Individual $20.00 Student $10.00 Senior (60+) $10.00 Family $40.00
Nonprofit $40.00 Business $50.00 Benefactor $200.00+
The Gresham-Ebetsu Sister City Association Membership Application is available for download here.

At this time we are not able to accept membership dues or donations by credit card. Please make checks out to “GESCA” and mailed to:
