Similar to independent schools in the US, tuition at ASIJ does not fully cover the cost of educating each student. Currently, tuition only covers 93% 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. ASIJ Annual Fund gifts can be designated either as Unrestricted or to the Strength & Courage Award.
Unrestricted gifts provide ASIJ with funds that are not limited to a specific program or project. Your unrestricted donation allows the school’s leadership to designate the funds raised to where the need is greatest and respond to needs as they arise. Unrestricted gifts are important because they allow ASIJ to offer transformative experiences to students, provide professional learning opportunities for faculty and take advantage of unique opportunities, thereby enhancing the overall ASIJ experience.
The Strength & Courage Award recognizes an ASIJ student who has displayed extraordinary courage and personal strength. The award, which is given annually, is ¥1 million towards the future higher education of the recipient which is given annually.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could make your annual donation to ASIJ and have it matched by a generous donor, making your gift worth twice what you gave? By participating in a corporate matching gift program, you can double your donation to ASIJ and the matching portion can count towards your giving level or gift club status.
Getting your gift matched is a simple process that could double your support of ASIJ at no personal cost. Many companies also match gifts from retirees and spouses, so please check all possibilities— both ASIJ and yourself could benefit even if you are retired.
For assistance in getting your gift matched, please contact the Advancement team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ASIJ's Gift Club program recognizes the support of our most generous and consistent donors. Members who support ASIJ at the Courtyard Circle level and above will be recognized on electronic signage at the ELC and in the Student Courtyard.
