Capital Campaign



With the centenary of Yokohama International School’s founding in 1924 just over the horizon, the school made the strategic decision to relocate to a new purpose-built campus in the Honmoku area of Yokohama to build the foundation of our second century of offering a quality international education.

The new campus, designed by world-renowned architect Kengo Kuma & Associates, will provide myriad advantages for our learning community. 

Funding the New Campus

The new campus, which represents by far the largest investment in the school’s history, will be funded primarily from three sources: capital reserves that have been steadily built up over a decade, proceeds from the sale of our Yamate-cho campus and low-interest loan financing. In addition, we have launched the YIS2C Capital Campaign to invite the extended YIS community - including current and former families and staff, alumni, corporate employers and other supporters - to help realize this dream. The campaign seeks to raise ¥200 million over the course of the project to fund enhancements in a range of areas. All gifts to the campaign, large or small, are sincerely appreciated and will help create fantastic opportunities for our students and the entire school community soon and for generations to come.
