Giving Opportunities

Priorities
  1. Students
  2. University and Campus
  3. Faculty and Research
Bocconi was born thanks to a visionary endowment gift and philanthropic donations have added to that initial gift over time.  Between 2007 and August 2018, the University has raised €99 milion in private gifts and pledges in support of Faculty and research, students and the campus.  To realize our goal of raising €120 million by 2020, we need your help.  In making a gift to Bocconi, everyone has the chance to support the processes that drive innovation and economic growth, and create a more open and sustainable society through young people.
 
The Within Our Reach Campaign—Una sfida possibile—aims to involve all those who believe in our plans and share our ambition to invest in the University by supporting scholarships, academic posts, research programs, technology, classrooms and new spaces on campus.  It is a pact between generations in support of young people: those who come before must encourage and support those who follow.    This is the essence of our vision.  This is what brings it within our reach. 
 
Priority: Students  |  Giving Merit an Opportunity
Attracting the best students and supporting talented young people, regardless of their background, is the way to promote equitable growth and development.  Bocconi invests more than €28 million in scholarships and financial aid each academic year.  Each year, one in five students receives financial aid to cover tuition costs but the University must do more for its student community.  
 
Bocconi attracts and educates talented individuals from around the world to become responsible, well-rounded citizens.  Immersed in a multicultural environment at Bocconi, students learn the importance of being active citizens with the concepts of an open society, social mobility, and a culture of legality, solidarity and equal opportunity.  The experience of many students at Bocconi equips them with the intellectual, ethical and social capital necessary to face new challenges, and play an effective role in tomorrow's world.  Bocconi aims to open the University to any bright and motivated student regardless of his economic condition and provide him with the knowledge and tools to realize his potential.
