Philanthropic Foundations

Local and national philanthropic foundations have become essential partners in igniting innovative medical research, advancing patient care programs, and fostering medical educational opportunities.

The Keck School of Medicine’s Office of Foundation Relations links private foundations, family foundations, and donor-advised funds with appropriate partners in the Keck School’s rich research and academic community.

Our office can help foundations navigate the university, discover researchers and programs of interest, and arrange visits to the Health Sciences Campus. We invite you to explore the many strengths the Keck School  has to offer and to become a valued member of the Trojan family.

For more information, please contact MariaElena Hege at (818) 489-6392 or mhege@med.usc.edu.

Corporate Foundations

Many corporate foundations have found value in partnering with the Keck School of Medicine to invest in patient care or help accelerate the pace of research in a particular field. Our Corporate Foundation Relations team can connect organizations with faculty in their areas of interest or particular research initiatives already underway.
