Support the College of Arts and Sciences


Gifts of Cash

The easiest gift to make and the one most often made is the gift of cash. Cash gifts are tax deductible and thus will reduce the "out-of-pocket" cost of the gift. You may make payments with cash, check, or money order, payable to the USC Educational Foundation, with College of Arts and Sciences in the "For" line. You may also make a credit card gift online by visiting our giving website.


Planned or Deferred Gifts

Life insurance can help you make a generous gift at a relatively modest annual cost. The low premium expenses make it advantageous for younger contributors, while older policyholders garner tax-planning benefits if they contribute policies that are paid up (if they no longer need them). A specified bequest of money or property in your will is the simplest and most logical method to support a particular academic program. This document is revocable at any time by the donor. Proportional bequests are ideal for contributors not ready to specify the exact size or purpose for their gift. No matter the type, the planned gift is a perfect way to leave a lasting legacy through the College of Arts and Sciences.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
