Any one willing to contribute and help present students is requested to deposit any amount and send details for our records.
An appeal from Ajay Pandey, to old students prompted us to form an endowment fund, in which I will be depositing Rs. 50000/-
This fund will be managed by team of Students, Dean Student Welfare,BITOSA officials as well as Chapter heads. There is a suggestion to involve batch ambassadors too.
The target fund is Rs. 6 crore and it is to be deposited in a fixed deposit when we collect a respectable amount. The interest obtained from it will be used to help students in whatever way the committee finds suitable.
For example we do have two requests for financial help to students who are unable to continue studies due to family problems.
“This is for we all, including prominently: the BITans, our Alumni, our Young boys and girls, who are studying in our great institution BIT Mesra:-
A few “Endowment” statistics– Yale University- $ 23.9; Stanford- $ 21.4; MIT- $ 12.4 billion, Columbia University- $ 8.2 billion, Cornell University -$ 5.7 billion and so on.
Please look at the figures closely; very, very closely. They are in billion and that too in US dollars.
The majority of the contribution comes from Alumni, who not only pledge huge sums to their Alma Mater, but many a times, they contribute in several other ways. They employ bright students in their companies, recommend them to their friends and fund them in the hour of need. This results into a supreme confidence among the students. The confidence leads to innovation. And above all, a bonding!
