Volume: 12.23.2023

Dear Reader,

Happy Holidays from IITKGPF!

We are profoundly thankful for your continuous support and everything it signifies – a belief in IITKGPF's mission and a dedication to advancing the causes that strengthen our beloved IITKGP.

Your steadfast commitment as alumni has been instrumental in positively impacting thousands of IITKGP students and faculty. In the year 2023, we have welcomed nearly 450 new alumni into our network which now stands at 12,248. 

Your generous contributions this year have facilitated numerous enhancements at IITKGP, including the modernization of Nehru Hall rooms, upgrades to the SN-IG dining hall and kitchen, the provision of 35+ scholarships for summer international internships and need-based scholarships, the establishment of endowed chaired professorships and post graduate fellowships, support for a leadership academy, and additional backing for the academy of classical and folk arts. However, there's still so much more we aspire to accomplish for our cherished Alma Mater.

As we bid farewell to 2023, bear in mind that there's still an opportunity to make a difference with your tax-deductible donations before the year draws to a close! It's a simple and impactful way to continue supporting our cause.
