Legacy Society

The mission of the Legacy Society is to honor and recognize those who express a commitment to the future of education, research and practice by including the USC Mrs. T.H. Chan Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy in their estate and financial plans. Your legacy will support a world class education to generations of practitioners, leaders, and researchers who study the impact of everyday living on health and wellness. Your legacy can be directed to a specific area of practice or designed to best support the priorities of the Division.
