How Your Support Helps
Your gift to the Campaign for USC Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy pays extraordinary academic and societal dividends. Whether in the classroom, the laboratory, the hospital and clinic or in the community, USC students, faculty, and alumni share high ideals and a powerful commitment to make a difference in the lives of others. We invite our alumni, friends, and supporters—individuals, corporations, foundations, and patrons of education and research—to join us in building on excellence.
Directed gifts allow you to designate your gift to one of the Campaign’s five targeted priorities: faculty, research, students, facilities, and impact.
Unrestricted gifts allow the Division to allocate funds wherever the need is greatest, and to take advantage of unique opportunities as they arise. Your contribution may be used to support costs associated with financial aid, innovations in teaching, dissemination and publication of research, equipment, facilities and much more.
Endowments allow individuals, family and non-profit foundations, and corporations to create a named, endowed fund designated for a specific purpose within the Campaign for USC Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy. Your principal gift is invested in the USC endowment and the interest anticipated to accure annually will then be used in perpetuity for supporting the specific program, scholarship, fellowship or faculty position you have chosen to endow.
In-Kind gifts allow individuals, foundations, and corporations to give tangible gifts and services to the Division. Examples of in-kind gifts include underwriting the printing costs of dissemination of occupational science and occupational therapy materials to the community, assistive and advanced technology, toys and equipment for educating students or treating patients, items for silent auctions, underwriting the production cost of an academic event, or donation of airline frequent flier miles to support a more globally connected faculty.
