University of Southern California

Giving to USC

USC Associates

The University of Southern California’s premier academic support group, the USC Associates is a philanthropic association dedicated to the advancement of knowledge. Our members exemplify the loyalty, commitment and generosity of spirit that are Trojan Family virtues. Gifts from USC Associates members provide essential support for some of the university’s most vital academic programs and initiatives.

When you join the USC Associates, you may direct your gift to benefit the school or program of your choice. For example, you may wish to support student financial aid, interdisciplinary research, endowed faculty positions or capital projects. Or you may prefer to support the president’s campaign priorities by making an unrestricted gift. However you choose to give to the USC Associates, your contribution makes a significant difference.

USC Associates members at all membership levels enjoy an especially close relationship with the university. As an Associate, you will receive a variety of courtesies that express and acknowledge this relationship. You also will be invited to exclusive social and cultural events. Perhaps the most important courtesy, however, is the personal care and attention extended to all members of the USC Associates. As a USC Associates member, you will always have a “friend” at the university whom you can contact with all of your USC-related questions and concerns.

On behalf of the entire USC Associates Board of Directors, I would like to welcome our new members, and thank you for your interest in the USC Associates!
