Parter International was retained by the Industrial Bank of Japan (now Mizuho Bank) in 1989 to establish its philanthropic Foundation.  We continue to work for the Foundation to this day. For 25 years, we conducted the search for the Foundation’s Executive Director; researched and recommended the grant giving areas; prepared marketing materials and annual reports. We also handle communications and PR activities; identify and negotiate with potential grantees; evaluate the grants; create five-year strategic plans; help organize and participate in all of the Board meetings; and provide program ideas to share with Mizuho facilities around the world.
