Every gift, regardless of size, makes an impact and positions our school for excellence.
USC Marshall Fund and USC Leventhal Fund:
When you invest in The Marshall Fund or The Leventhal Fund you ensure that your contribution, big or small, supports the fundamental infrastructure of the Marshall School of Business or Leventhal School of Accounting and fortifies our overall mission. Unrestricted giving has an almost immediate impact on nearly every aspect of the Marshall community and allows Dean Geoffrey Garrett to respond to unforeseen opportunities and allocate resources to initiatives not directly supported by the school’s budget. Whether it’s through increased financial aid, enhanced technologies, out-of-classroom opportunities, expanded student services and staffing, or bottom-line operations, your donation strengthens the bedrock of everything we do.
Gifts from alumni help the USC Marshall School of Business and USC Leventhal School of Accounting remain competitive leaders in global business education. Alumni support is part of a proud tradition at USC and not only benefits students and faculty, but also increases our alumni participation rate. As our ranking increases, the value of your degree increases as well!
What is a "participation rate"?
It 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. The percentage is calculated each and every year. In addition to providing financial support to the University, this participation 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.
