About M N Kapur Educational Foundation, New Delhi
|The M N Kapur Educational Foundation (MNKEF) has been set up to cherish and immortalize the memory of one of India's greatest educationists, viz. Mr. M N Kapur, who was at the helm of affairs at Modern School, and its longest serving Principal, from 1947 to 1977.
During this period, Mr. Kapur led Modern School to an apex position amongst Indian public schools, but more importantly, guided the development of thousands of students, helping them assume leadership roles in business, government, academics, sports, politics and indeed every walk of life. Mr. Kapur did this by inculcating humane values and self-belief and the strength of character to always stand up for what is right and challenge what is wrong; to always persevere and never give up.
In memory of this great teacher, who played an invaluable role in shaping the lives of so many, a group of Modernites came together on the occasion of his 100th birthday in December 2010 and created an educational foundation to remember, honor and cherish his ideals. A key objective of MNKEF is to support the educational needs of talented but economically disadvantaged children, particularly the girl child.
During the past 20 months, dedicated contributors have helped MNKEF mobilize a significant corpus and facilitate the admission of two deserving young girls from economically disadvantaged backgrounds to Modern School and defrayed their full educational costs. The Foundation is registered with the Income Tax authorities as a public charitable trust, contributions to which are eligible for 80G exemption. The activities of the MNKEF have been lauded and resonate with a large number of Modernites who believe that Mr. Kapur's philosophies and principles played a key role in their success, continue to be relevant and need to be perpetuated.
