Nishimachi Annual Giving is the lifeline which sustains Nishimachi's high level of academic performance and development of the school.
Nishimachi Annual Giving raises funds that enable Nishimachi to enhance its educational program through up-to-date instructional resources, improved technology and facilities, expanded sports programs, increased student diversity, and community service.
We hope that parents will make Nishimachi their highest philanthropic priority while their children are students here. We also believe alumni will recognize the critical importance Nishimachi played in their success and will support the school's ability to provide similar opportunities for students.
Gifts to Nishimachi range in size from ¥1,500 to several million yen. Contributions should be in line with what you can afford. While leadership gifts are important for the school's economic strength, every gift does matter and every gift does make a difference. Strong financial support demonstrates the donor's understanding and commitment to the school.
Yes! Nishimachi values every gift regardless of the size. Last year, more than half of all donors gave ¥20,000 or less.
