Italian Campus Giving
Give to the Italian Campus!
February 3, 2021 was the 20th Anniversary date of the arrival of the first Duquesne in Rome group in Spring 2001. Although we have not been able to host students on the campus in Rome during this 20th Anniversary semester, we are preparing for the near future and an even more successful 20 years to come. With the hardships of the global pandemic, we risk families seeing study abroad as a privilege rather than a necessity. We believe more than ever that global perspective and intercultural sensitivities are a necessity in a 21st century work force.
Help us continue to provide a life-changing experience at our flagship campus in Italy!
Gifts can help sponsor a student, enrich the programming in Rome, boost the campus library collection, and keep our facilities up-to-date. There are multiple ways to give:

Monies donated to this fund can be spent immediately to help students attend, buy necessary items for the library and the campus, and enrich programming in Rome.
3. Cento Recognition: Duquesne in Rome Endowed Fund
Started in 2010 for Duquesne in Rome's 10th birthday, this fund began to help provide for the program's future. Inspired by the custom in medieval Florence of 100 ("cento") prominent citizens sharing and rotating power and advisory functions, consider becoming one of an elite 100 donors to provide for the future of the Duquesne in Rome Program. One hundred ("cento") alumni and friends, each donating a minimum gift of $1,000 will endow a $1 million fund. The annual income from this endowed fund will support future students and expenses. One-time gifts or pledging funds are options for becoming a Cento level donor.
Benefits: Cento level donors' names are proudly displayed on the Donor Wall in Rome, in addition to special invites to Cento events.
If interested in becoming a Cento donor, please fill out the following electronic form:
4. Duecento Recognition: Duquesne in Rome Endowed Fund (by invitation only)
Started in 2010 for Duquesne in Rome's 10th birthday, the 200 ("duecento") is an elite group of Italian Campus alumni and friends from the program's early years. These 200 generous contributors will help give the Duquesne in Rome program a permanent future. A gift of $200-$999 will help endow a $1 million fund. The annual income from this endowed fund will support future students and expenses.
This level is now by invitation only, as there are very few spots left on the Duecento Donor wall. If you are interested in this level, please contact Michael Wright for more information.
