Thank you for visiting BUET87 website. We are a group of Engineers and Architects from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) who started the BUET classes on Aug 10, 1988 in session 1987-88. We have come together to form a charitable organization, BUET 87 Foundation to help change millions of lives of poor people in Bangladesh and around the world.
BUET 87 Foundation is a registered non-profit organization in the state of Arizona, USA and exempt from Federal income tax under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.Contributions to BUET 87 Foundation are deductible under section 170 of the code.
We ask everybody to donate to different projects of our foundation so that we can keep on helping young children get proper education and help poor to change their lives.
When our kids celebrate their Birthdays in the USA or in other parts of the world, let us make it also an event to celebrate with their friends in Bangladesh who are not so fortunate. By making them part of the celebration will give an opportunity to our kids living abroad to build the compassion and kinship with Bangladesh which we all hope our kids develop. Part of the event, we will arrange food,cake and other foods of your liking for the kids abroad, in some orphanage or similar place and at an scheduled time will connect the kids from both sides over Facebook live to exchange greetings with each other. Cost of the event is minimum $200 US, you can increase too for other gifts if you desire so.
You can schedule the event by filling up this form.
BUET87 Foundation Scholarship Project
What is this project for
There are thousands of poor kids who are very talented but can not continue their education because of financial burden. Many of them can not pay for the cost of tuition, books and even clothes. Many of them have to help their family as an earning member. So they do not even get time to study. If these kids were given a little bit of help they could pass these barriers and shine in their life just like every body else.
BUET87 Foundation started a project in 2011 to provide a single scholarship for a year to one such kid in the rural Bangladesh. And yes, the kid did excellent result after getting the scholarship because he did not have to pull rickshaw any more as the amount he got was helping his family. After that great success we started more scholarships and got excellent results. We believe we can open many more doors for many more kids in the coming years and that will have significant effect in the society.
How we manage the Scholarships
We have formed a scholarship fund for these scholarships. We select candidates based on their merits and family financial situations. After we select and offer scholarship to them, we also take the responsibility of monitoring the progress of their education. After an application for scholarship is approved for a certain period (usually one year) by the BUET87 executive board, two supervisors (a local guardian in student’s residence area and a BUET87 representative) are assigned. With close co-operation among the student, local guardian and BUE87 representative, the study progress of the scholarship recipient is evaluated at regular intervals and feedback is provided by BUET87 to the student through the local guardian. The scholarship period is also subject to be extended with promising result shown by the student.
You can help. You can donate to “BUET87 Education Support Fund” by clicking the button below. You can chose to donate a lumpsum amount or a monthly recurrent payment. If you chose a monthly recurrent payment of $20/Month that can support at least one scholarship for as long as you want.

Join us in this noble endeavor and lets change the future of many lives.
