FY21 Q4 Japan Community Impact session for Class for Everyone Fund
このファンドはCCNが6/28に実施するClass for everyone様をお招きして実施するウェビナー向けのものになります。 セッションを見て、活動に賛同される方はぜひ、ご協力をお願いいたします。 現在、コロナ渦のため、NPOもこれまでのようにボランティア活動ができず、支援を必要としている人へのサポートが難しい状況にあります。日本社会に貢献しているNPOに寄付で貢献してみませんか? これまで、ボランティア活動や寄付の経験がない方もこれを機にぜひ、ご協力いただければと思います。 一般的に他者へ貢献すると自分の幸福度も上がる傾向があるといわれています。 現在、私たちが住んでいる日本も含めて、世界中でボランティアや支援を必要としている人たちがいます。このような難しい局面である時こそ、私達のConscious Culture (自己理解、他者への理解、自分が他者(チーム、お客様、より大きなコミュニティー)にもたらす影響に常に目を向け理解し、意図的に行動することにより最高の体験を生み出す)を体現し、サポートを必要としている人たちを支援していきましょう。 This fund is for a webinar that CCN will be conducting on June 28th with Class for everyone. If you have seen the session and agree with the activities, please support us. Currently, due to the corona vortex, NPOs are not able to volunteer as much as they used to, making it difficult to provide support to those who need it. Why don't you make a donation to an NPO that is contributing to Japanese society? Even if you have never volunteered or donated before, we hope you will take this opportunity to do so. In general, it is said that contributing to others tends to increase one's own happiness. Currently, there are people all over the world, including in Japan where we live, who need volunteers and support. It is in these difficult times that we must embody our Conscious Culture (self-awareness, understanding of others, always looking at and understanding the impact we have on others (our team, our customers, the larger community), and acting intentionally to create the best possible experience) and help those who need support. Let's help those who need support.

Enable Nalanda 2.0 to launch Ekagrid in Bengaluru in 2022 Fund
This fund is to raise $10,000 for Nalanda 2.0 to enable it to launch Ekagrid, a first-of-its-kind world-class multidisciplinary research university in India, in 2022. Ekagrid (previously University of the Future in India) has reached an agreement with the Karnataka Government to establish Ekagrid in Bengaluru and have signed MOUs. Why does this matter? In the knowledge economy, nations with great universities will thrive. The great universities of the world - be it Stanford, UC Berkeley or MIT of today, or Nalanda of ancient India - are multidisciplinary in nature; serve as engines for research, education, and innovation; drive economic growth; solve the problems of society and humanity; and make lives better for people. However, even after over 70 years of independence, India does not have even one such world-class multidisciplinary research university. What is the current status? Nalanda 2.0 launched this university initiative in 2018. Thanks to the support of over 1075 donors to Nalanda 2.0, which includes Cisco employees and matching company contributions, and dedicated efforts of many, significant progress has been made: assembled an exceptional team, developed an actionable plan, established a Section 8 non-profit company in India with a stellar Board of Directors, announced the founding Chancellor and the founding COO, finalized branding, registered trademarks, and received approvals for 12A and 80G exemptions. Most recently, reached an agreement with the Karnataka Government to establish Ekagrid in Bengaluru and signed two MOUs. More details can be found at https://www.ekagrid.org/. What is the planned impact? When established, Ekagrid will spur the development of high technology industries in India and more broadly, solve problems that matter to society, create new knowledge, spur innovation and entrepreneurship, and prepare the next generation of innovators, researchers, entrepreneurs, and leaders. Thus, a gift to launch Ekagrid is a gift that will keep giving back, forever! How will funds be used? With your support, Nalanda 2.0 can complete the key next steps necessary for launching Ekagrid in 2022, including raising Phase 1 funds for the university, purchasing land, receiving regulatory approvals, selecting the founding VC and the founding team, and establishing additional partnerships with premier research universities.
