Appeal


Dear Modernite,

The Modern School Old Students’ Association (MSOSA) is one of the most active & vibrant Old Students’ Association in the country today. Through ‘The Modernites Trust’ (Trust), formed in 1983, we the old students have consolidated our talent pool and resources which we aim to give back to the Society what we have received from it by raising funds for various philanthropic activities undertaken for the Student/Teachers of the School.

Through sponsorships by the Modern School alumni and proceeds from MSOSA activities we have been able to provide “Scholarships” for needy & meritorious students enabling them to get quality education in Modern School, Barakhamba Road. We presently have 35 scholars studying in the School under this programme. The selected students, inducted into Modern School generally from class 6th , are given financial assistance towards fees, uniform and other expenses from S1 to S7.

The "GURU-DAKSHINA" purse of the Trust provides financial assistance to retired teachers as a mark of respect. Till today over 55 retired teachers have benefited from the scheme.

To sustain our activities, we request a positive support from you / your organization.

Apart from corporate donors like MGF, Inter Globe, various batches of 1960, 1964, 1966, 1967, 1974, 1979, 1980, 1983, 1984, 1993 etc. have also come together and jointly contributed to the corpus fund for education of some of our scholars.

You can also contribute towards a "Scholarship Programme". As a donor or a batch donor, you can contribute to the education of a child annually which is presently Rs. 2,00,000 per annum and would increase based on incremental school fees.

The contributions made by you are eligible for tax deduction u/s 80 G of the Income Tax Act.The cheque may kindly be sent in the name of 'The Modernites Trust' to Mr. Manu Narang, Hony. Secretary, The Modernites Trust, C/o. Modern School, Barakhamba Road, New Delhi – 110001.

Let us assure you that even a small amount of your contribution will go a long way towards giving back to the Society a little bit of what we have received from it.

Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,
Chander M. Lall
