The Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC relies on the generosity of alumni, friends and foundations to help continue our legacy as one of the nation’s leading institutions of dental education and clinical practice.
Your gifts are essential to helping us attract the best students; hire and support the world’s foremost clinicians, researchers and educators; and offer state-of-the-art clinical care to patients in our community.
Are you grateful for your Ostrow experience and want to give something back? Would you like to leave a legacy to benefit Trojans for generations to come?
