Engrave Your Name in the TERI Building
In 2016, Talent Education Research Institute (TERI) celebrated its 70th anniversary. As part of the 70th anniversary commemoration, we included repairing and reforming the TERI building which was built by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki 50 years ago. Construction on the building began in October 2016, and we are planning for it to be completed the end of May 2017. Though the main purpose of the repairs was to bring the building up to code for earthquake safety, in addition to reinforcing the building we have also included some reforms that we believe will improve the function and comfort of the building. Two of these additions are an elevator and a soundproof room.
To many in both Japan and throughout the world the TERI building is much more than just a building or a school. This is always very evident when people return and nostalgically tell stories about things they did here. It is a place that brings people together from many countries. It is place where many who have been here, as well as many who have not yet visited TERI, feel a strong belonging.
As both the building reformation and the 70th anniversary commemoration comes to an end, we have been thinking of a way that members of the Suzuki family can show to all who visit here that TERI belongs to them. And as our 70th anniversary finale, we are offering two ways that you can have your name engraved in the TERI building. With a donation of more than 5,000-yen, your name will be engraved on a commemorative plate that will be displayed in the reformed TERI building. Or, what about having your own personalized seat in the TERI hall? The first 250 people who donate 30,000 yen can have their own engraved nameplate on the back of a seat in the TERI hall. (To see an example of these plates, please refer to the below image).
Anyone interested will need to fill out the form (ｗｏｒｄ

※The form will be available in the end of April.

The application period of donations and donation form is from May 1st to 31st, 2017
. If you are interested in having your name on a seat in the hall, please remember that we can only offer this to the first 250 people.
