Just under a week has passed since we launched our fundraising campaign for two major initiatives to combat the Covid-19 emergency. And in so short a time, thanks to the generosity of our community, we have already raised over 50,000 euros which have been added to the 200,000 euros donated by our University.
Donations in favor of the Lombardy Region - Coronavirus Emergency and the Mutual Aid Fund of the Municipality of Milan, came from all members of the large Bocconi family, faculty, students, alumni and staff, from all over Italy and the world.
We therefore want to thank each of you who have so generously joined this important initiative, displaying the values of ethics and solidarity that Bocconi has in its DNA. We want to thank the faculty and staff members who donated a percentage of their salary, and we thank the students, student associations and alumni who have given generously through the iGive platform.
Any amount, large or small, is important to support the doctors, nurses and all the staff who work tirelessly day and night to treat citizens and defeat Covid-19. Contributions will also help the Milanese businesses and people in need to make it through the current situation and subsequently resume the normal activities of our city.
This is why we have set ourselves an ambitious goal: to quickly reach 300,000 euros. We therefore ask you to share this message, or simply the link to the iGive platform (https://giving.unibocconi.it/projects/coronavirus-bocconi-beside-lombardy) with your friends, your contacts, your colleagues and anyone who can contribute to helping the Lombardy Region and the Municipality of Milan to win this important battle for our future.
Together, thanks to the generosity and the safe, responsible behavior of each of us, we will be able to overcome this challenge!
