What is Give One for IIT Bombay?


Give One - a part of GO IITB - is a unique campaign that makes it possible for every alumnus/alumna to express his/her gratitude to IITB with planned, periodic contributions. g02e.jpgThe insight behind this campaign is that a donation does not have to be “one time” or “a large sum” and an alumnus should not wait for years before giving back to IITB. 

The name Give One is to express the guideline that alumni should give at least 1% of their annual income towards supporting IIT Bombay’s never ending "Tryst with Excellence".   Remember, this is just a guideline; no contribution is too small or too early.  And it is entirely voluntary.   

Over the years, we expect this to become a significant source of alumni donations to IITB.  Let's all Give One ... and say GO IITB!

Class of 2010 has shown us the way!


In a rare gesture of giving back to their alma mater, over 70% of the graduating class of 2010 pledged 1% of their annual salary to the Institute on their Convocation Day.  Around 780 students of the graduating class have already signed a pledge to donate 1% of their annual salary.  They are the first batch to have committed to start their giving back even before getting their first pay cheques!

What next?

Give One exhorts alumni to give back 1% of their annual income toward supporting IITB’s never ending “Tryst with Excellence”. 

Make sure you also send an email to with your name, amount donated, and a cause listed in the mail.
