GAABESU Emergency Fund Project
of our BEC/BECDU/BESU have long been active in raising funds to aid fellow alumni,
students, faculty and staff members for pursuing
academic endeavors or while undergoing cost- of prohibitive emergency
medical treatments or facing other trying circumstances. Even before the
Global Alumni Association was formed, alumni from all over the world have
successfully raised and contributed in the tune of Rs.
40-45 lakhs (see Section 8.0, References of the
Process Document) to help several students, staff, alumni and their family
members. In all the cases, 100% of the fund raised for a particular case
went to the individual or their family members.
The common factor in all fund drives is that they were coordinated by
alumni volunteers using http://www.becollege.org
website and other electronic media. Although most of the cases have been
on the site: http://www.becollege.org,
the list is not exhaustive.
the formation of the Global Alumni Association, there has been an ongoing effort
to formalize and streamline the process of mobilizing such aid collected
from alumni contributions. In order to manage this effort efficiently and
in a transparent
manner, this program will be governed by certain
rules and guidelines. The emergency fund program is planned to execute in
two phases. The first phase would work in a “reactive” mode and
once a case is accepted, it would be pursued following
the existing process. Phase two will be planned
as reactive plus proactive mode with an existing fund that can be delivered
right away to mitigate some emergencies. Since we are yet to create a fund
to combat emergency situations, only phase one is described
in the process document.
