Frequently asked questions...
Alumni tend to have the most emotional attachment to their alma mater. At CUA there is no difference--we share common training, experiences, and memories about campus. We have gained a lot from the CUA experience and its brand name in our respective professional and personal lives. We also have the most to gain from continued success of CUA, its status as a world-class institute, and success of the alumni pool.
Q: How will my contributions help?
EVERY contribution counts! It doesn't matter if you can contribute $10 or $10,000 per year, it all adds up. With over 30,000 alumni, if every person contributed $10 per month--we could collect $4 million in a year and help CUA immensely with their needs!
Q: What will I get from contributing?
You will get a significant return on your contributions. You will gain from the continued success of CUA, its status as a premier, world-class institute, and the success of the alumni pool. In addition, you will have:
- Knowledge and satisfaction of having made a difference to CUA
- Fulfillment of giving back to an institution that has made a positive impact on your life.
- Various forms of recognition by CUA and the Foundation (you may choose to remain anonymous if you'd like).
- A tax deduction on your contribution. The CUA Foundation is a not for profit organization with a 501(c)(3) status in the United States (Federal ID: 47-0747227).
Q: What is the process that the Foundation takes to make sure my donated funds make it to MUCT?
The IITKGP Foundation works hard to insure that any and all donations are provided to the projects they were earmarked for. The conventional method starts with the donation process, which is followed by the holding of the funds within the Foundation bank account. Representatives from the IIT Kharagpur Alumni Affairs and International Relations Office will then reach out to our office when they are preparing to put the donations to use for a project and/or initiative. We, at the Foundation, either mail or wire the donated monies from that particular fund to IITKGP. You can make a donation with confidence here in the US or Canada, knowing that the funding will make its way to its stated intentions!
