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.
ASIJ has had an Annual Fund for over 40 years and this is the principal source of donations from individuals. In addition to gifts to the unrestricted Annual Fund, we also run special campaigns and thematic giving to support specific enhancements. We also have the Gate Society that recognizes individuals who include ASIJ in their estate plans or establish a special gift or endowment.
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. Supporters at all levels are recognized each fall in The Ambassador magazine. Families who donate ¥500,000 or more each year will be recognized on digital signs in the Chofu student courtyard and the ELC lobby. The names will remain on the Chofu courtyard sign indefinitely, listed according to the school year of the donation.
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.
If you wish to donate in dollars for tax deductibility in the US, the easiest way is to make an online donation to Give2Asia via your credit card. In Japan, the easiest way is to make an online donation here. See the How to Give page for more details.
When making a donation through your charitable gift fund in the US, please select Give2Asia as the receiving institution and include a note on the donation that it should be directed to ASIJ. If you have any questions, please contact Give2Asia at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, feel free to contact email@example.com to notify ASIJ of your intended gift.
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.
