Corporate Membership

The total annual cost of running our programmes is £400,000. Much of this, particularly for the schools education and outreach programme, is funded by donations from corporate and individual members. Donors receive special mention in publications and on the website. Donations may be designated all, or in part, in support of education activities.

All staff of corporate members and their families enjoy the usual benefits of membership and may attend events as members.

We can send email information to anyone listed by you, as well as supply multiple copies of our printed publicity and news materials to a central address. Some (mainly by invitation only) events involve CEOs and we should be grateful if you would supply his or her name also.

  • We give recognition to our benefactors on any material we publish and on the Japan Society website.
  • Education donors receive special mention in education publications and on the education pages of the website.
  • The Japan Society is in a strong position to use past successes as a springboard to meeting future challenges in promoting UK-Japan relations.
  • We believe that people to people contact, especially involving children and young adults, is key in determining the future course of international relations.

    exciting images of Japan to our young people, who will be the business, cultural and
    political leaders of tomorrow.
  • We are a truly independent organisation with no government or commercial bias.
