How It Works

  2. You receive an income-tax deduction
  3. Keck Medicine of USC and/or the Keck School of Medicine may keep or sell the securities


  • You may receive a federal income-tax deduction for the full fair-market value of the securities
  • You avoid long-term capital-gain tax on any appreciation in the value of the stock
  • Your gift will support Keck Medicine of USC and/or the Keck School of Medicine as you designate
