About Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation (AIISF)
From 1910 to 1940, tens of thousands of immigrants entered the West Coast of the United States through the Angel Island Immigration Station. Located in San Francisco's North Bay, not far from Alcatraz Island, the buildings were nearly forgotten and their history almost lost, until one day in 1970, when Alexander Weiss, a California State Park Ranger, re-discovered the treasure they held. His chance discovery began the long journey to save the immigration station, and ultimately, to save the stories hidden within it, and to help us remember its sad, but important role in American history.
Jezuba (www.jezuba.org) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and we are fully operated by volunteer staff as well as interns ranging from high school students, college students, and recent graduates working on meaningful projects. Our ultimate goal is to empower Gen-Z to tackle tough issues such as poverty through community-based entrepreneurship.
All donations are fully tax deductible, and we will provide a receipt for your donation record.
