The Catholic Trojan Class Gift Program

Our Savior Parish, and USC Caruso Catholic Center, is a diverse community made up of over 10,000 current USC students as well as alumni, parents, and friends of USC. We call this the Catholic Trojan Family. Since our humble beginning in 1923 when just 62 USC students gathered together to form the Newman Club on campus, the Catholic tradition at USC has grown with the university itself. Generations of students have attended Mass here, graduated, and made our Catholic alumni network stronger than ever. Through the tremendous support of our growing and dedicated Catholic Trojan community, we are one of the largest communities of Catholic students west of the Mississippi. As we continue to grow, the Catholic Trojan Class Gift Program will be critical to ensuring a bright future for our community. Thank you for considering a gift to your Catholic Trojan Class Gift to support this wonderful institution.

FAQ's About the Catholic Trojan Class Gift Program

How do I get involved?
One way you can get involved is by becoming a class agent. The Class Gift Committee (Class Agents) is a group of vibrant, self-motivated and dedicated students who serve on behalf of their fellow classmates to design the perfect Class Gift project.
How much do I have to pledge?
The strength of the Class Gift Program is in the act of combining your pledge with your classmates' to make a larger impact. A $1,000 pledge can be paid out in smaller monthly installments of $20-40 and still have a significant impact on the ministry for years to come.
I want to make a pledge but can I delay the start date?
Yes! If you're about to graduate in May but can't start giving until September you can still pledge a monthly amount with a delayed start date for September.

Why Give?

Every year students graduate from USC with fond memories of their time on campus and with the parish community. As a way to honor those memories and to ensure the future of the trojan family, we give. "If I could find a way to forever serve those that come after me...that would be a legacy worth leaving." - Catholic Trojan Class Gift Participant
