Make a Monetary Donation
Throughout its history, the University of Southern California has relied on the generosity of alumni, friends, corporations, and foundations that endorse the university’s mission of excellence. This support has played a vital role in propelling USC into the front ranks of the world’s premier private research institutions. Now, more than ever, philanthropic funding is essential to sustain this important legacy.
The reasons for making a gift to USC are personal and varied. Perhaps you are grateful for your USC experience and want to give something back. Maybe you would like to leave a legacy to benefit future Trojans for generations to come. Perhaps you feel passionate about supporting an important cause, such as cutting-edge research or the development of new technology. Or you may wish to take advantage of the tax benefits of making a gift to the Student Basic Needs Fund.
If you would like to support the day-to-day operation of the Trojan Food Pantry, provide grants for students experiencing basic needs insecurities, or support our other programs and initiatives, please designate your gift to USC Student Basic Needs Fund.
*If you are a USC employee, you may make a gift using payroll deduction via the link below.
