NLSIU successfully wraps up First Alumni Giving Month

March 12, 2022

NLSIU ran its first alumni Giving Month campaign during February 2022, as an initiative to communicate updates on recent developments at the University to essential stakeholders, our alumni. We envisage Giving Month as an annual event to present regular updates as the University implements its Inclusion and Expansion 2021-25. Giving Month allows interested alumni to lend support in jointly achieving NLSIU’s development goals.

This year, each week of February delved deeper on a separate Focus Track for the University’s development:

  • Research and Teaching
  • Physical Infrastructure
  • Sustainability and Student Welfare
  • Student Financial Aid

You can read more on these topics here. Updates were also shared on a live webinar with the University’s Vice Chancellor, Sudhir Krishnaswamy.

Through Giving Month, NLSIU raised contributions of Rs 29 lakhs with further commitments of Rs 60 lakhs to be donated in the next five years. These commitments include individual and Class gifts. Thirty alumni from India, Singapore, Hong Kong, Switzerland and the UK donated to various development initiatives, and the BA LLB Classes of 2002, 2011 and 2014 also pledged support for specific projects. Student financial aid received the most interest and support from alumni.

We are happy to see the alumni community’s engagement with the updates and generous response during Giving Month and look forward to building on this through the year. Akanksha Sharma (BA LLB 2013), from NLSIU’s Office of Alumni Services will be reaching out to you to plan various city events and alumni gatherings on campus. We look forward to meeting you, and in the meanwhile, please reach out to us at any time on and
