 Bangalore 2015: At IFIM, we believe that life is not all about how much you can take from this world, but how much you can give back to it. All the members of the IFIM Family including the students, faculty, staff and management team are instilled with desire to make a difference in the world that they live in.

Dr. Madhumita Chatterji, Director IFIM Business School said,In November 2015, the state of Tamil Nadu had witnessed a disastrous flood and many families were struggling to recover and meet their basic needs. At IFIM, we decided that both students and employees should contribute in some way to help. Thus, we decided to partner with Actionaid India and harmonize our efforts towards the contribution for the Chennai Flood Relief Fund.”

IFIM employees realized that if not physical volunteering, the least that could be done to be helpful was by donating one day’s salary to Actionaid India to help those who are starving for food and living without shelter.  As a result of this drive, IFIM Institutions have raised and donated INR 1,56,000/- in total towards the Chennai Flood Relief activity. Students of IFIM Institutions as well participated in “Chennai Flood Relief Activity” starting from donations of Rs.50 per person up to Rs.1000 per person, along with a contribution of a lot of more essentials. Besides a total contribution there was also a donation of medicines, packed food products, sanitary pads, bed sheets, towels, mattresses, shorts and lungis.

Students of IFIM Institutions also undertake a large number of CSR activities throughout the year, which include IFIM Kanyathon, Shiksha Aadhar, S.A.F.E, Tree plantation, World Heart Day awareness, Swach Bharat Abhiyan activities, Legal Aid Cell, Lake cleanup, Voting awareness drive and much more
