With one in seven CEOs with a management degree from IIMA, the Institute has the highest number of alumni in CEO/CXO-level roles in India’s top 500 companies. IIM Ahmedabad alumni have also founded some of the finest business enterprises. The IIMA Endowment Fund leverages these connects towards institution building and legacy building at IIMA.

The IIMA Endowment Fund has consistently championed initiatives that, enable the Institute to provide quality education to a broader spectrum of students including creating scholarships and awards for diversity and inclusion, entry level scholarships to attract students from all across India including Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities, differently abled students etc. Through strategic investments and partnerships, the Fund has facilitated the creation of research chairs in sectors such as healthcare, sustainability, consumer tech and also various Centres of Excellence which act as multi – disciplinary hubs and have a lasting impact on the Institute’s research landscape fostering industry and government collaborations.

The award serves as a call to action for the philanthropic community in India to embrace the power of endowment funds. Endowments provide a stable and sustainable source of funding that empowers institutions to plan for the long term, ensuring a lasting impact on education. This effort would not be possible without the vision and support of IIMA Board of Governors and IIMA faculty.

In a country where education plays a pivotal role in shaping the future, organized philanthropy through endowment funds becomes a critical force for positive change.
