Support SMIS: FAQ

Our Annual Fund is a year-long fundraising program, supported by everyone associated with the school: parents, students, staff, Board of Trustees and alumni. The Annual Fund helps us to enhance and enrich many of the cultural and academic programs that makes St. Michael’s International School so special. We organise a number of fundraising events throughout the year which supports our Annual Fund. The most significant of these is our Annual Bazaar which this year will be held on Saturday 20th April 2019. The Annual Fund runs from August to July every school year.

Our Annual Fund helps us to continue to offer many of the cultural and academic activities that make SMIS so special and importantly, it is put to use immediately to enhance programs for our current students. Previous projects have included the installation of shade in the playground, 27 desktop computers for the ICT suite as well as volume of books for the Library and classrooms.

In 2020-2021 the Annual Fund will be used to enhance  school resources in the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics.)

Annual Fund donations are put to use immediately in the School to enhance programs in the current academic year. Furthermore, your children are directly benefiting from the generosity of families who have donated in the past. The Annual Fund provides you with the opportunity to keep this cycle going.

Cash gifts of any size are welcome and will make a positive difference to our school. Gifts of ¥100,000 or more will be recognized in our Jewel Donor Recognition Club.
