Your generosity helps support the missions of the ANDREA BOCELLI Foundation and BERVANN Foundation.

Veronica and Andrea Bocelli.

Empowering People and Communities through the ANDREA BOCELLI Foundation.

The world is filled with nonprofit charities endorsed or backed by prominent celebrities, but very rarely do you find enough underlying substance in the actual delivery.

I have had the real pleasure to work with Veronica and her team at the Andrea Bocelli Foundation for a while and it has been quite a positively shocking experience: while Andrea is globally known for his unique and fascinating musical acumen, there is another very important facet to his life mission – his genuine care and enthusiast eagerness to support underprivileged communities and his tremendous affection for children.

The Andrea Bocelli Foundation has built 9 schools in its 9 years of existence, provides access to quality education to over 3,000 children, distributes over 21,000 gallons of water daily and provides access to basic healthcare to over 8,000 individuals.

After a very successful first edition last May, our nonprofit BERVANN Foundation is thrilled to Co-host a 2nd edition of the Bervann and Andrea Bocelli Foundation Virtual GALA on Wednesday December 30 to raise awareness and funds towards Building a Better Future for Our Children.

We have done a lot of good so far. Together with your help, we can make a greater impact. 


Thank you for supporting the ANDREA BOCELLI Foundation and BERVANN Foundation.
