Keck Medicine welcomes your gift through a pledge — a formal statement of intention to make a gift. With a pledge, you may complete your gift by making regular payments over time, allowing you to give more generously than you originally may have considered. Additionally, each payment on your pledge is eligible for an income-tax charitable deduction as allowed by law.

Gifts of Appreciated Securities, Stocks and Bonds

Gifts of appreciated securities, stocks and bonds provide considerable tax advantages when transferred to USC before they are sold. If you have held your securities for more than one year, you may find that your gift will provide a twofold tax benefit, creating an income-tax deduction as well as helping avoid the capital-gains tax that would have been due on their sale.

Matching-Gift Programs

An easy way to double or even triple your donation to USC is to find out if your company has a matching-gift program. Such programs typically match all or a percentage of employee contributions to charitable organizations, making the employer a partner in employees’ personal philanthropy. Simply obtain a matching-gift form from your employer’s personnel office, fill it out, and provide it to USC with your contribution.
