This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the USC Good Neighbors Campaign. Since 1994, USC faculty, staff, and friends have been coming together every October to help USC be a good neighbor. In all, they have donated more than $17.7 million dollars in support of university-community partnerships. 100% of contributions are distributed via USC Good Neighbors grants (formerly USC Neighborhood Outreach or UNO). Supported partnerships strive to enhance educational opportunities, promote health and fitness, enhance public safety, and support economic development. Nearly 550 grants have been given to community organizations to enhance educational opportunities, promote good health and fitness, support economic development, and improve safety.

1.7 million reasons to celebrate good neighbors

More than 5,500 Trojan faculty and staff raised $1.7 million in last fall’s 19th annual USC Good Neighbors Campaign (GNC).

Since 1994, USC faculty and staff have helped the communities around the university to thrive through the fundraising drive.

In all, GNC donors have contributed more than $17.7 million to the campaign, funding more than 551 partnerships around the University Park and Health Sciences campuses.

One hundred percent of the funds raised each year support university-community based partnerships that serve the residents of South Los Angeles and Boyle Heights.

“USC’s faculty and staff take tremendous pride in our community partnerships, so it’s no surprise that the Trojan Family exceeded [the] goal,” said USC President C. L. Max Nikias. “In strengthening our connections with our local neighborhoods, we build exceptional programs that benefit everyone, while bringing additional creativity and intellectual curiosity to our campuses.” more here
