Price Naming Celebration – Thank You

USC Price School Naming Celebration
USC Price Celebration Dear Friends:

Yesterday, we had the incredible opportunity to recognize and honor the Price Family and the Price Family Charitable Fund for their extraordinary $50 million dollar gift to name and endow the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy.

The gift honors the life and legacy of the late Sol Price, graduate of the USC classes of ’36 and ’38, Price Club founder, business entrepreneur and leader who was committed to addressing social justice and poverty. Through this gift, we will advance our outstanding scholarship on major issues affecting society and our work educating the next and future generations of leaders in government, in business, and in the nonprofit sector.

Sol Price The generous investment from the Price Family Charitable Fund will forever link the life and legacy of Sol Price with our School. We are deeply grateful for their investment and partnership with us.

If you were not able to attend the celebration yesterday, please take a moment to view the Sol Price Tribute video that was shown during the ceremony. The more you learn about Sol Price’s amazing accomplishments in business, public policy and urban development, the more pride you will feel to be associated with a school that bears his name.

Thank you for your continued support.
