AIT Reserve Fund

    Monetization of AIT Reserve Fund for “Friends of AIT Foundation"

    We are pleased to inform you that the AIT Alumni Association (AITAA) Headquarters, and AIT Office of Advancement and Alumni Affairs (OAAA) have jointly agreed to launch a campaign to request each and every Alumni to provide a one-time contribution towards the setting up of an AIT Reserve Fund.

    Given the tumultuous last few years we have all gone through because of the COVID-19 pandemic
    and now that we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. It is time we the alumni as one of the major stake holders of the institute, should rally together to start to contribute to this Reserve Fund, which will be managed through a Foundation independent of AIT. This Reserve Fund will be different and not intended for AIT operation costs. This will be like an Endowment Fund managed solely by the alumni as seen in other universities.

    We believe now is the time to start this campaign with AIT having embarked on transforming itself into a more globally recognized and noteworthy Institute with a motto ‘Social Impact with Innovation’, providing engineering, environment, and management education and research, focusing on Sustainability and Social Impact issues. It is with this background and context that we are reaching out to all our alumni.

    How to use the AIT Reserve Fund
    This Reserve Fund will be different and not intended for AIT operation costs. This
    will be like an Endowment Fund managed, solely by the alumni as seen in other
    universities independent from AIT management.

    In order to ensure absolute transparency, all the donations will go into a Reserve
    Fund account which will be opened and managed by the Friends of AIT Foundation
    (FoAIT) and the Foundation’s financial experts will be investing and managing this
    fund in order to get a higher interest income.

    In the future if AIT needs to use the interest from this reserve fund to provide
    scholarships or for any other purposes then AIT will send the official request to the
    Chairman of the FoAIT to seek the Foundation’s consent.
