At ASIJ, we fulfill our mission of "developing compassionate, inquisitive learners prepared for global responsibility" thanks to the generous financial support of our community. Every year, parents, faculty and staff, alumni, alumni parents, corporations and friends give to ASIJ to guarantee our school's continued growth and success.
ASIJ is a non-profit institution and tuition does not cover the cost of educating each student. Gifts to the ASIJ Fund allow us to continue offering the many important cultural and academic programs that make an ASIJ education so special. We also run fundraising campaigns when additional funds are needed to complete particular improvements to our facilities or programs.
In recent years, our donors helped us to resurface the main athletics field with artificial turf and install field lights during the Field Campaign (2007). We updated our facilities to be more eco-friendly through the Green Campaign, committing to a variety of projects from solar panels to heat-reflecting silicon paint (2008-2010).
In March of 2011, when an earthquake and tsunami devastated the north of Japan, we immediately launched a Japan Relief Fund in order to direct funds and volunteers to the areas in need of relief efforts. The 4 x 4 Campaign that had launched shortly before the earthquake, was restarted in the fall of 2012 and raised funds for a new suite of athletics facilities and façade for the Chofu campus.
