Alumni gifts support
We have several new initiatives in the works, opportunities to support our department and leave a lasting mark.
One new opportunity involves the creation of the Friends of Earth Sciences, FoES.
A recent addition to our department’s interior walls is a collection of beautiful, polished slabs of metamorphic, igneous and sedimentary rock. These large (4’ x 6’) samples are tangible reminders of why we love the earth sciences, will beautify our hallways and used as teaching tools in our General Education (GE) labs. Special gifts, above the $5K level, will give you the opportunity to dedicate one of these rock samples to commemorate your bond to our department. Your name, or names, or text will be inscribed in a plaque dedicating a rock in your chosen honor: a professor, a classmate, a loved one.
All gifts are likely tax deductible, should be made out to USC-Earth Sciences, and checks mailed to
