The Torch Initiative for Women's Philanthropy
The Torch Initiative is a new, catalytic force to uplift the school’s top priorities and demonstrate the power and impact of collective philanthropic action at USC Marshall.
The Torch Initiative represents a long-term, sustainable commitment by USC Marshall to focus on women’s giving and leadership, starting with a 3- year campaign to bring attention to our cause. In December 2027, we will showcase the collective impact of women’s giving to the school by announcing and branding projects and programs that have been “Powered by the Torch Society”.
Please consider giving to the Torch Fund or making a major gift to help us meet our goals to raise $30M, double Marshall's number of women donors, and inspire 100 women to make a leadership gift to the school. Donors who support Marshall as part of the Torch Initiative will be recognized as part of The Torch Society.
We hope you will join us in this collective vision to “Pass the Torch” and model philanthropic leadership to the next generation of women at USC Marshall.
