Legacy of a lifetime


Create a sustainable impact on the institute & future generations of students by supporting IIT Delhi’s priorities and create a legacy of a lifetime.



Worldwide, endowment funds have been established by global education institutions to secure their long-term financial stability and support their programs. They operate by accepting donations from their alumni, corporates and philanthropists and invest the proceeds of those donations to generate investment income.

The income generated is utilized to fund activities for the benefit of these institutions, many of them for perpetuity. Many institutions abroad have run their endowment funds for several decades and boast fund sizes running into billions of dollars each.


The IIT Delhi Endowment Fund aims to provide a balanced funding model for the Institute. Well-established endowment funds of leading Universities are known to provide upto 30% of their annual operating expenditures, allowing for stable long-term planning.
