She has served on more than 20 charitable boards over the years.
According to Fujimoto, one of her goals at The Prevention Center is to “build strong bridges with other nonprofits, as well as foundations, corporate donors and others in the funding community. We also seek to raise awareness for the center, which is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year. We plan to raise funds and broaden our private donor base in order to continue moving forward with the center’s best practices within the child abuse prevention community.”
