Donations are contributions of money, movable or immovable property with no quid pro quo.
Given the overall reduction in funding for universities, private donations are increasingly important for achieving strategic objectives in research and a significant social impact. Charitable contributions are tax deductible.
The donor's will is expressed in a letter of intent followed by an acceptance statement by the University.
Anyone can donate to the University: private citizens and partnerships (IRPEF taxpayers), as well as corporations, public or private entities, companies and institutions of all kinds, with or without legal status, even if they are not resident in Italy (IRES taxpayers).
