Advocates Circle

The Advocates Circle is a philanthropic society for the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work offering exclusive courtesies for donors who make a gift of $250 or more per year and $35 or more for recent graduates of the MSW, MSN, DSW, and PhD programs. As a member, you have the opportunity to become more involved with the school, and the school has the opportunity to recognize its generous donors.

Initial membership is automatic once a qualifying donation is made and/or renewed on an annual basis. Contributions that determine a donor’s giving level and subsequent benefits may be through a one-time gift, a matching gift or a recurring gift spread out over 12 monthly installments. Don’t miss out on a wonderful way to engage with us!  For more information about benefits or becoming a member, please contact 213.821.6423 or sowkadvn@usc.edu.
