USC Passes Halfway Mark in $6 Billion Fundraising Drive

The University of Southern California, the state’s largest private college, has raised $3.7 billion, putting it on pace to meet a $6 billion capital campaign goal by the end of 2018.

The university, which plans to break ground today on a $650 million campus expansion, has received four gifts of more than $100 million, including a $220 million anonymous donation, according to President C. L. “Max” Nikias. The $6 billion campaign was the largest-ever when unveiled in 2011, until it was surpassed by Harvard University’s $6.5 billion drive.
