All young people who have lost their parents have the right to an equitable education. Through your donation you will support Ashinaga’s mission to provide support to orphaned students worldwide.


Cards Accepted

The following credit cards may be used:
Visa, MasterCard, JCB, American Express, MUFG, DC, UFJ, Nicos, DinersClub.


Your online donation will be billed to your credit card in accordance with the terms of your agreement with the credit card issuer. The transaction will normally appear on your statement either the month after you complete the transaction or the following month. Please check your credit card statement for details. The transaction will appear on your statement as “Ashinaga ikueikai” (in Japanese: あしなが育英会).

Date of receipt of donations, issuance of receipts, etc.

The date your donation is received is not the date you complete the online donation form, but the date Ashinaga actually receives the money from the credit card company. Online credit card donations made in December are generally not received by Ashinaga until January or later. Furthermore, in order to minimize costs, Ashinaga does not send receipts to donors at the time of each donation. Instead, in February each year, Ashinaga sends donors a single receipt for all donations in the previous calendar year. Donors also receive an annual report. Finally, please note that, under Japanese tax law, donations to Ashinaga do not qualify for the donation deduction. We are grateful for your understanding.


Please be aware that once you have completed a donation transaction, it cannot be cancelled, regardless of the reason. Please be sure to confirm information you have entered before finalizing the transaction.
