Japan for UNHCR

  Japan for UNHCR (J4U) is a registered Japanese nonprofit organization receiving approximately USD $43 million per year in donations, growing at a 20 percent annual rate with 70 employees in its Tokyo office.

“We were able to respond quickly to the COVID-19 pandemic by building the infrastructure capacity to potentially reposition 50 of our face-to-face fundraisers as telemarketers, using Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services to move the data between cloud applications.”
