Longtime local attorney Blaine Tamaki and his wife Perciosa (Precy) Tamaki are pleased to announce the formation of the TAMAKI Charitable Foundation.

The TAMAKI Charitable Foundation is a charitable donor advised fund financed and directed by the Tamaki Family and out of the gate the couple is contributing $100,000 in aid in response to COVID-19.

The Tamaki's say,“We feel fortunate to have lived in Yakima nearly all of our lives and we appreciate the opportunity to give back.”  The planned giving doesn't end there with $2,000,000 - $4,000,000 more to come over the next 5-7 years.

The Foundation will donate to non-profit charities in the Yakima area and the State of Washington for the purposes of promoting social justice for all, especially pertaining to issues of diversity, eliminating racism, youth, education, health, and income inequality.
