Appeal to Alumni

We want the children of the future to gain as much, perhaps even more, than the alumni. For this the institutions need to develop in a balanced way, keeping up with change and yet never losing sight of the core values. Funds that help us realise these goals are very welcome.

It is with this vision that the Trust has sought its donations to be exempted under Section 80 (G) of the Income Tax Act and is also registered under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) which enables it to receive foreign funding. We are hopeful that this will help us garner wide-ranging support from our illustrious alumni.
