Please Support Our Work



Thank you for your interest in making a donation to the efforts of Rufus Lin Productions to develop Japanese singers and musicians, enabling them to present English-language albums, and giving English-speaking music lovers the opportunity to enjoy singing and musical talent that would otherwise only be available in the Japanese market.

We welcome any donation of US$5 or more. We are a regular for-profit enterprise, so your donation will not be tax-deductible. However, it will be put to good use, developing and promoting Japanese artists trying their hardest to make it in the English-language market.
