Why AIM needs your Support
The best reason to give to AIM is not simply because you are an alumnus and feel an obligation to the Institute. It is because you believe in what the Institute stands for and you want to help change the world through the powerful vehicle of global business.
Succeeding in the global marketplace is but one component of a business school education in the 21st century. But we must find better ways to help the students understand what they can do in the business world to make a positive contribution to society, giving them the tools, skills, and perspectives they need to become managers who will add value to society — even as they do well for themselves.
Gifts from alumni and others who believe in the AIM mission figure largely in the Institute’s continued success. Generous support of faculty, students, and facilities is critical to reaching our objectives in the future.
Designating your Gifts
Donations to AIM may be made under the special heads listed as under or may be use-as-you-will unrestricted donations that the institute is free to use where it deems fit.
Unrestricted Giving – Money received under this head will be used by the Institute according to its discretion and where it would be most effective.
Scholarships to Underprivileged Students – Funds to provide deserving students with assistance thru cash and kind.
Loans to Needy Students – Funds to provide deserving students with assistance through soft loans.
