Almost 50 years ago, John Felice, the Rome Center's founder, envisioned a permanent American campus in Rome dedicated to cross-cultural exchange. That dream is becoming a reality, and we are closer than ever to fulfilling its potential.
The John Felice Rome Center is now one of the largest American study-abroad programs in Europe. As we gain momentum, we look to our alumni and friends to join us to create more opportunities for our students and improve our academic environment.
Insieme per il futuro will build an even better Rome Center. This $12 million campaign will completely renovate the facilities on campus, increase student scholarship support, and add student programming.
Your support of Insieme per il futuro will advance the work of the JFRC in four areas.
Provide students with real-world opportunities for sponsored study-trips and immersive service and internship experiences.
Renovate, build, and renew our facilities to enhance the academic environment and improve the overall student experience.
Expand scholarship opportunities for deserving students.
Shaping the future
The $12 million goal of Insieme per il futuro is divided into three parts:
- $4 million in outright gifts from alumni and friends--matched by Loyola University Chicago
- $4 million in planned gifts, such as bequests or gift annuities, from supporters
- $4 million in matching funds from Loyola University Chicago
Doubling your gift
To demonstrate the University's commitment to the John Felice Rome Center and the confidence it has in the support of JFRC alumni, Loyola University Chicago will generously match outright gifts on a one-to-one basis for a combined total of $8 million.
We invite you to join us to ensure the future of the JFRC... insieme!
