Home / Membership / Gift-in-Kind


Gifts-in-kind are an important way of benefiting USC Athletics. We welcome gifts in kind and are most grateful when donors think of us with this form of giving.

These types of gifts are non-monetary items of tangible personal property or services that represent value to the Athletics Department.  As a gift in kind donor, you will be credited for the gift and given confirmation of receipt for your tax records.  In addition, you may be able to receive USC Athletics membership benefits based on your donation.  Individual, corporate and business in-kind gifts are all welcome.

Trojan Car Dealers

USC Athletics would like to thank our car program participants listed below. These individuals and the dealerships they represent support USC athletics by providing a courtesy vehicle to the department.

If you are in the market for a new car, please patronize these dealers and help support out Trojan Family. For more information on joining the car program, contact Gregg Millward at (213) 821-0754
