An Emotive Visual Identity for IIT Delhi Endowment Fund Launched
New Delhi: Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi and its accomplished alumni created history in 2019, by announcing an Endowment Fund, which was launched by President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind. Founder and Co-founder alumni donors have already confirmed an initial commitment of Rs 250 Crores to the fund, with a target to achieve a corpus of USD One Billion over the next six years.
The efforts of IIT Delhi alumni in establishing their endowment fund are further lauded today by Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi as a brilliant idea in his address to the nation through his monthly radio programme ‘Mann Ki Baat’.
PM Shri Modi said, “I have read certain such efforts, where the former students have given back to their old institutions in great measure. Nowadays, alumni are very active in this. IITians have provided their institutions many facilities like Conference Centres, Management Centres& Incubation Centres set up by their efforts. All of these endeavors improve the learning experience of the current students. IIT Delhi has initiated an endowment fund, which is a brilliant idea.”
Outreach and advancement activities related to the IIT Delhi Endowment Fund will be undertaken by the IIT Delhi Endowment Management Foundation (IITDEMF), working to build a relationship of trust and engagement with IIT Delhi alumni around the world.
As IITDEMF sets up operations, there was a need to create a distinct visual identity to strike an emotive connection with the alumni community and generate awareness of the mission and purpose of the endowment fund.
