Planned Giving


You can make a long-term positive impact on the Rossier School by arranging for a legacy gift through your estate.

Donors that make a lasting commitment by including the USC Rossier School of Education in their estate plans are recognized in the School’s Legacy Society and in the USC Trojan Legacy Circle. If you have included Rossier in your estate plans, we would like to honor you.

The Legacy Society

What is it?

Your planned gift will have meaning and impact for years to come. Those who remember USC Rossier through a will, trust, designation or other planned gift, are invited to join The Legacy Society. The Legacy Society provides a way to recognize and thank donors during their lifetimes.

The center can now expand its research on postsecondary institutions, as well as its critical community outreach work helping underserved students get into college. Read more
