IIT-KGP has a long and historic legacy of Alumni Giving Back which has existed in different forms. The Graduating Class Gift is yet another chapter to be added in KGP alumni legacy initiated under My Imprint Programme. It is a class-based effort directed towards raising unrestricted funds from students of graduating batch. A part of the collected fund is used for Senior Class Gift while the rest goes towards Endowment. The Endowment would again be utilized for students' services only. It is an opportunity for graduating students to take their first step in being soon-to-be alumni by making their Graduating Class Gift, the gift which impacts student life in the KGP campus. This challenge offers seniors the chance not only to make a gift, but also to leave behind their imprint.
Your gift would help the Institute in progressing towards being in World's top 20 technological Institute [IIT-KGP VISION 2020]. Institute Ranking increases the value of degrees and so the brand value of campus students as well as alumni across the globe.
Institute's alumni giving rate is an important measure which is used to rank and evaluate IIT-KGP and there is an 80% correlation between World's Top Ranking Institution and their Endowment size.
IIT-KGP has provided you with outstanding, academic resources, lasting friendships and countless memories over the years you spent at KGP campus. Now it is your chance to pay tribute to your Alma Mater that changed your lives forever. Senior Class Gift provides you with the 1st chance to give back to Alma Mater to enrich the students' experience of future generation.
Many of us don't realize that government fund can never cover all of the IIT-KGP experiences. If IIT-KGP wants to start a new pre-professional program, support an innovative student project, or expand student life opportunities, philanthropy makes it possible.
