Gifts of appreciated securities, stocks and bonds also provide considerable tax advantages when transferred to USC before they are sold.

Support our mission and recommend USC Norris as a beneficiary of a class action cy pres distribution.  Our doctors not only provide personalized and compassionate care, but they are also renowned leaders in research and education, driving revolutionary discoveries. Cy pres awards fuel and accelerate our ability to develop new treatments, sponsor clinical trials, and combat chronic conditions that impact almost every family.

Designating USC Norris as a cy pres recipient will help our clinicians, researchers, and students develop novel treatments in the context of a major, multi-disciplinary research university.  Our focus on education and supporting the community, along with our non-profit status, distinguish us from other businesses who develop and patent treatment options for consumers. Cy pres awards to USC Norris amplify the power of academic medicine not only in Southern California, but around the United States and world.

Cy pres awards are unclaimed funds from class action settlements or judgments.  These funds can be awarded to a nonprofit organization that engages in work that advances public interest.  The court makes the final determination of where a cy pres award should be directed, but plaintiff and defense attorneys have an opportunity to influence that decision by recommending USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center.

For more information, please contact Minhaal Nathani, Executive Director of Development, (323) 865-0700 or Minhaal.Nathani@med.usc.edu.
