You can make a long-term positive impact on USC Gould by arranging a legacy gift through your estate. A planned gift offers you an opportunity to generate income for life for you and/or a beneficiary, claim valuable income tax deductions, and avoid capital gains on appreciated assets. Donors that make a lasting commitment by including USC Gould in their estate plans are invited to join the USC Trojan Legacy Circle (TLC).
With smart planning, you may actually increase the size of your estate and/or reduce the tax burden on your heirs. Learn more about developing your charitable gift and estate plans in consultation with your attorney and other advisors. You may also contact the USC Office of Gift Planning for more information on how to make a planned gift.
