AC Milan via Fondazione Milan have raised over 500,000 euros on their GoFundMe page to support the Azienda Regionale Emergenza Urgenza (AREU) - the emergency response arm of the Lombardy region’s government. Milan's owners have also donated 100,000 dollars to the effort through The Gordon and Jenny Singer Foundation to the IRCCS Ospedale San Raffaele [San Raffaele Hospital in Milan] to purchase life-saving ventilators.

In addition to all the support from fans, the Milan Club of Sichuan and Guangzhou have donated 12,000 masks for use by medical staff in Italy and will be delivered to Milan’s Ospedale Policlinico and AREU.
