Corporate Contribution Plan

The Corporate Contribution Plan (CCP) is a part of the Tokyo International School Fundraising program.

The aim of the Fund Raising program is to maximize revenue from non-tuition sources in order to maintain and improve the educational program at TIS. The CCP promotes this aim while at the same time potentially offering tax savings to participants.

Corporations and other organizations which participate in the CCP are also making a donation to TIS, since a portion of the their CCP donation made to the school under the CCP is allocated to fund raising donations. As a major incentive provision, the CCP allows for scholarships to be granted to the dependents of participating companies and organizations.

A 1978 agreement with the Japanese National Tax agency exempts these scholarships from taxation as personal income in Japan. The following conditions apply to the Corporate Contribution Plan:

  • Participation is for a (renewable) two-year period.
  • Contributions are in units of Y100,000.
  • Contributions are not deductible as business expenses for Japanese corporate tax purposes. They are subject to the deduction limitations of regular contributions (ippan kifu) and may not be accounted for as specially designated contributions (shitei kifu or tokuzo), according to Japanese tax regulations.
