Why Give

    Our priorities, your opportunity  |  Bocconi is fueling change and development for Italy and Europe through three strategic priorities: its Students, its Faculty and Research, and the University and campus—the community and environment in which we live.
 
Alumni, parents, faculty, researchers, corporates, foundations, and students now have the opportunity to contribute to the development of the University and to become an active part in the future of our society and the country. As a nonprofit institution, we are able to receive donations and we can guarantee the managerial transparency of the funds donated. In addition, donations are tax deductible according to US law. 
    By sharing the University's funding opportunities and making a donation to Bocconi, we support the process that drives innovation and economic growth, with the aim of contributing to the construction of a more equitable and sustainable society.
    Friends and Bocconi offer several opportunities to invest in the development of one of the most prestigious universities in Europe. We invite you to deepen the contents of our strategy and we will be pleased to have the opportunity to explore with you the ways in which you can collaborate to achieve this goal.
 
PRIORITY: Students

5 of these students graduated in academic year 2017-2018
