Furusato Nozei (for Japanese Residents only)
Furusato Nozei designations from August 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017, will be qualified for a matched gift from the DAVIS IMPACT Challenge, up to $1 million USD.*
Under the Furusato Nozei (hometown tax) system, taxpayers in Japan are allowed to pay a portion of their national and local income tax and residential tax payments to a specific municipal government. The town of Karuizawa has generously offered to let donors select UWC ISAK Japan as a hometown tax recipient, with 95% of the amount of each donation going to UWC ISAK Japan, and the remaining 5% contributed to local educational activities. Under this system, a donor pays a portion of his or her estimated tax payment to Karuizawa Town in advance. The donor’s income tax and/or residential tax are refunded or reduced by that amount when annual tax payments are calculated. To utilize this system, donors must submit an application to Karuizawa Town in advance; please note that the deadline for applications is Dec. 31 for the fiscal year ending the following March. If you have questions about donating to UWC ISAK Japan through Furusato Nozei please email us: email@example.com.
*Individual donations up to $250,000 will be matched. 100% match for new donors and 50% match for existing donors (those who have given to the school in the past 3 years).
