Since 1994, USC faculty and staff have been helping the communities around the university to thrive through the Good Neighbors Campaign. In all, they have donated more than $17.5-million to the fundraising effort, which takes place each October at both the University Park and Health Sciences campuses. Contributions are distributed to USC Good Neighbors grants–previously Neighborhood Outreach (UNO)– and United Way. Nearly 550 grants totaling $17.5-million have been given to community organizations to enhance educational opportunities, promote good health and fitness, support economic development and USC hiring, 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
