Donation Program

This program is to support the development of the university’s academic research and education by receiving donations from companies and private investors. Donators can designate a research purpose or researcher, and attach his/her name to the donation. We use donations we receive according to donators’ intents, and through the research outcomes we hope we can contribute not only to the university but also widely to the society.

We accept donations (cash, bonds, etc.) for the purpose of contributing to the university’s research and education. Donors are not allowed to receive the research outcomes in return for their donation or receive goods that are purchased or given based on the donation as a free gift, at a discounted price, or leased at a reduced rate.
