Planned Giving

Put Nishimachi in Your Plans

Planned gifts and bequests are made by individuals, who include Nishimachi International School, or Nishimachi Foundation for U.S. taxpayers, in their gift and estate plans. Gift of appreciated securities or real estate can be a part of your planned gifts. 

When making a gift through an estate plan, changes can always be made if your situation changes.


You can structure a bequest to leave a specific item or amount of money, make the gift contingent on certain events, or simply leave a percentage of your estate to Nishimachi.

Tax Benefit

While current gifts such as gifts of appreciated securities can have tax benefits, your estate may benefit from an estate charitable deduction, lowering the amount subject to estate tax. If your estate in Japan is subject to property tax, your gift may be entitled to a property tax charitable deduction for the gift's value depending on the location of the property or other circumstances.

Next Steps

To make a charitable bequest, you need a current will or living trust. We can provide example forms that may be helpful, but please consult your lawyer and tax advisor for tax advice and to draft specific directions.
