Dear Alumnus/ Alumna,
I sent this mail to my faculty colleagues at IITM, but you may find the info useful as well if you’re contemplating contributing, or would like to encourage others to give back to the alma mater….
As you interact with alumni, non-alumni individuals, industry, corporates, Foundations, please gauge their interest in partnering with IITM in a contributory mode. We have several pieces of collateral material on our OAA website (http://alumni.iitm.ac.in) that can assist you in this regard. I have reproduced relevant links below for your convenience:
