A High School Student Presents at TedX Youth

The ASIJ Annual Fund

Similar to independent schools in the US, tuition at ASIJ does not fully cover the cost of educating each student. Currently, tuition only covers 94% of our annual operational costs. Donations to the ASIJ Annual Fund help bridge that gap, allowing us to invest in program enhancements that will benefit our students now and in the future. Each year we ask our whole community to join us in support of this effort. Unrestricted gifts provide ASIJ with funds that are not limited to a specific program or project and are utilized where the need is greatest. As donations to the Annual Fund increase each year, so does ASIJ’s confidence to reach for more of its aspirations. ASIJ depends on the participation of all of its community members to fund those things that already define ASIJ and help us become the school that we all aspire for it to be. By making a gift that is meaningful to you, you’ll be joining those who, throughout the years, have supported the ASIJ mission. 

Matching Gifts

Many companies have a “matching gift program” by which the company matches (in full or in part) the charitable gifts of their employees, their spouses, and retirees. In addition to the important income this provides to the school, the matching portion counts towards the gift club status of the donor. If you know that your company has a Matching Gift Program, great! Please follow your company’s instructions. If you don’t know if your company has a Matching Gift Program, and you’d like us to research it for you, please send an email to and we’ll look into it (please include details of your employer, or prior employer if you’re retired).

Gift Clubs

ASIJ's Gift Club program recognizes the support of our most generous and consistent donors. Members who support ASIJ at the Meguro Circle level and above will be recognized on electronic signage at the ELC and in the Student Courtyard on the Chofu Campus. Donors are also recognized in the donor lists printed in the fall issue of The Ambassador magazine each year, and those who give at a gift club level are listed accordingly.
