New Classroom complex - Calling all alumni to pledge support

Written by : alumni admin | Friday,30 July 2010

\r\n Dear Alumni,

\r\n

\r\n It has been an honor to work at IIM Bangalore since I joined in 2007. I firmly believe that IIM Bangalore is one of the finest management institutions in Asia having a unique combination of bright faculty , staff , students, alumni and a prime location.  As the world witnesses one of the most challenging times, it is looking at India to deliver the next level of growth and business opportunities And as an institute , we want to be ahead of everyone else in bringing the best research and offerings that make us a world class destination of choice for students , researchers , organizations and contribute to this process.

\r\n

\r\n  

\r\n

\r\n To reach that stage, we have to invest a lot of time and resources.  Since 2005 , the institute has not been receiving any grant from the Government of India. We generate our own resources through our programs that takes care of the entire operation of the institute. To reach world class standards, we need to continuously invest in the future of the institute. This is where I strongly appeal to all alumni to support the “Campaign for IIMB”. We need your support to build infrastructure, invest in research chairs, scholarships and attract international attention as well.

\r\n I am writing to you all with a specific purpose. We plan to build a state-of-the-art classroom complex next to the library. It will have 8 classrooms , 11 discussion rooms and will cost us Rs 15 Crores.I would personally invite you to pledge your contributions towards this project. All donations from you will be publicly recognized and will get 100% tax exemption. At this juncture , we request you to send us your pledge in an simple email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . We will get back to you on the timeline and mode of payment later. And we assure you that this money will be kept ear marked only for this classroom complex. The entire financial system will be made transparent to you and we will be happy to share periodic reports on the construction progress, allocation of money etc. Your pledge will ensure that the future generation of students at IIMB will have a quality of education that will make you feel proud of your alma mater.

\r\n

\r\n You could choose to donate any amount you desire independently , or as a group e.g. a batch can pledge the cost of a single classroom. Some other batch can pledge the AV equipment or interiors for the classrooms. You could also help us get in touch with other donors or corporates/foundations etc,  who might be keen to come forward and help this effort.

\r\n

\r\n In the next few weeks , we will organize a open house meeting to discuss this further with you . I am very happy to engage with all of you. And collectively we will build IIM Bangalore as one of the top institutions of the world .
