Alumni Participation in Giving

Your gift will help USC Marshall School of Business and USC Leventhal School of Accounting remain competitive leaders in global business education. Alumni gifts not only benefit our students and faculty, but also increase our "alumni participation rate."

What is a participation rate?

The participation rate is the percentage of alumni who provide financial contributions to the university during the year. This is not a measure of the size or amount of the gift, but rather the number of graduates who give. This percentage is calculated each and every year. In addition to providing financial support to the University, the participation rate directly affects how we are ranked against our peers. U.S. News & World Report uses the alumni participation rate as the only indicator of alumni satisfaction when it publishes its annual ranking of colleges and universities. As our ranking increases, the value of your degree increases, as well.

Matching Gifts

You can multiply your gift if you work for a company that has a matching gift program. If your employer has such a program, please indicate the company name and mail your matching-gift form.
