Our collective efforts can make a significant difference as we strive to build a stronger, more vibrant community. The time has come for us to give back to the institution that laid the foundation for our success and to help ensure its continued progress.

By giving, we grow as a community. Our mission is to create a lasting impact by expanding opportunities for the next generation of IIT Delhi students, enhancing the institution’s infrastructure, and fostering a culture of innovation and excellence.

Organize Fundraisers: Leverage your local networks to host fundraising events in your town or city. These events raise funds and help strengthen our alum network and raise awareness about our initiatives.

Together, we can make a difference in countless students’ lives and contribute to our beloved institution’s overall advancement. Your support and involvement are critical in helping us transform our vision into reality.

Let’s come together as a proud, motivated, and driven community to ensure that IIT Delhi remains at the forefront of academic and research excellence. As we embark on this journey, we are confident that our collective efforts will bear fruit and make a lasting impact.
