Donating

Please make a generous donation Today! Here is HOW

To make your tax deductible donations please choose one of the methods below:

Credit Card donations via Secure System

Make your donation via our

Secure Credit Card Donations page – its easy and safe!

After we process your credit card donations, the Promotion’s Committee will issue your tax deduction form and send it, with a receipt, to the mailing address indicated in the online donation form. This may take a few months as processing the credit card has many delays.

Bank Transfer (振込み)Pledge:

Download the Donation Pledge Form, (here for PDF version ) fill it in and fax it back to the Alumni Relations Office on campus at (81-0)25-779-1180 or electronically submit it to alumni@iuj.ac.jp We will quickly send you bank wire transfer instructions (furikomi – 振込み). Follow the instructions to fulfill your pledge. Once we verify we have received your donation, the Tokyo Office (Promotions Committee) will issue your tax deduction form.

Cash Donations

If you are on campus, feel free to stop by the Alumni Association office for a Cash Donation. A temporary receipt will be issued, followed by the official receipt and tax deduction form from the Promotion’s Committee
TAX EXEMPTION* and RECEIPTS

After IUJ identifies your donation in our account, and if it is 10,000 yen or more, IUJ Promotion’s Committee in the IUJ Tokyo office will send you a receipt and a copy of IUJ’s certificate of tax-exemption which you can present the tax authorities. This can 6-8 weeks for credit card payments. Unfortunately, this Tax Exemption is only for those in Japan at this time!

Any questions? Please contact Gretchen Shinoda at alumni@iuj.ac.jp

If money donations are not possible, we still need your contributions. In this photo Cenk Gurol IM96 meets then-student Jami Wu IM03 for an on-campus employment interview. This alumni-student help is highly valued. If you are unable to make a donation to the Scholarship Fund, please help IUJ in the following ways:

  • Provide JOB info and opportunities – Hire a student!
  • Provide INTERNSHIP projects – Host an intern in a company or international organization
  • Help with new student recruitment through word-of-mouth advertisement and IUJ Ambassador support
  • Join the Alumni Experts program

Thank you!

Initial and Successful ThANKS Fund Campaign – Donor COMMENTS

Bingwu Xie (IM98) & Jinhui Sun (IM99) (May 2007) writing in from Tokyo
Both Jinhui (IM 99) and I (Bingwu IM98) are very happy to be able to be part of this!

Iggy and Mhu Sison (Feb. 2007) writing in from the Philippines
This is the least we can do after having benefited from an IUJ scholarship about 20 years ago. We have much to be grateful for — an IUJ global perspective, a Japanese cultural immersion and lifelong friendships (including our own marriage made possible by IUJ!).

Lamin Drammeh 1997 MBA writing from The Gambia
“I am thrilled by this noble idea. We, the alumni of IUJ, are obliged to give back something valuable to our school”

Whitney (Smith) Jiranek 1999 MBA writing from New York City
“I loved my time at IUJ and being funded by scholarship was an incredibly generous “gift” I feel I may never know how to repay. I guess I am seeing my donation to this fund as a great contribution towards that.”

Masaru Yokoi IM00 writing from Japan
“As one of Sohei’s children, I would like to follow in his steps and contribute to IUJers.”
