The USC Gould Campaign
The $150 million USC Gould Initiative is the most ambitious in our school history, and is part of The Campaign for the University of Southern California — an historic, multi-year effort to secure $6 billion or more in private support from individual donors, foundations and corporations. Reaching this lofty goal will require the most significant fundraising effort in our history — one that will touch and transform every aspect of the university and USC Gould. We invite your partnership to help fulfill this potential.
