After much work and cooperation between Alumni and NIS, Friends of Nagoya International School, Inc. has been established.

FoNIS was officially recognized on August 1, 2019 as a U.S. Public Charity under Section 501(c)(3) by the U.S. tax code. This allows donors the maximum amount of deductibility for their U.S. dollar donations. The governing documents, policies, and procedures of FoNIS ensure that they follow strict rules in order that donation will reach NIS promptly and without undue costs.

The Board consists of three volunteer members, David G., Paul B., and Andy V.; all are NIS alumni. While FoNIS is not part of nor controlled by NIS, it is an integral part of the school’s fundraising.

Recently FoNIS has set up their website page ( to accept online donations.
