KIST welcomes donations from both individuals and corporations from the school and wider communities. Donations are used to improve and expand the quality of our facilities and services in order to enrich the educational experiences of our students. Specifically, your donations help us to:
- Expand and improve the physical school environment.
- Purchase equipment and resources for the classroom.
KIST was accredited as a "tokutei koeki zoshin hojin" (a "charitable organization for the purpose of continued public benefit") by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government on December 15, 2006. According to tax law, an amount of money given to the school specifically as a donation can be deducted from an individual or corporation's annual income; however, donations made at the time of first enrolment before the first day of school are not recognized under this policy.
After receiving a donation, KIST will issue a receipt as well as a copy of our certificate of recognition as a charitable organization. To claim the deduction, these documents must be submitted to your local tax office when you lodge your annual income tax return. Please note that money donated can only be allocated for pre-determined purposes such as the expansion of educational facilities or the construction of new school buildings, or for specific purchases such as machines, equipment, texts and teaching materials that are recognized as being for the purpose of continued public benefit.
