Donations to the ASIJ Annual Fund can be made in either usd or yen. USD donations are tax-deductible in the US when made through Give2Asia—they can be made by credit card online, stock, check or bank transfer. Gifts that are tax-deductible in Japan can be made in yen via bank transfer, cash or credit card.
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.

ASIJ Annual Fund donations are built into the annual operating budget. ASIJ produces an Annual Report each fall that outlines budget expenditures and revenue. This report is sent to all current parents and the previous school year’s ASIJ Fund supporters. It is also available on the ASIJ website.
We ask everyone in our community to help. Current parents, alumni, alumni parents, current and former faculty and staff, corporations and friends. ASIJ needs and wants everyone in its community to be a supporter of our school.
Yes, of course! Donations of all sizes have an impact and your participation at any level is an investment in ASIJ students and the better future that they will create. If you donate in US dollars at www.give2asia.org/asij, you can also opt into monthly donations and have a big impact over the course of a year.
In Japan, ASIJ has a special tax dispensation status (tokuzo) that allows us to issue tax receipts for yen gifts over ¥2,000. Dollar gifts made through Give2Asia and designated to ASIJ are tax- deductible in the United States. For more information on tax deductibility, please contact the Advancement Office at email@example.com.
Donations are accepted year-round. The ASIJ Annual Fund year runs from July 1–June 30 each year and donations are recognized accordingly.
While ASIJ is most appreciative of philanthropic support from friends, the school does not accept gifts from prospective families who are not otherwise affiliated with the school during the Admissions process. This ensures that the focus remains on ASIJ’s prospective students and their strengths as candidates for admittance.
