W.M. Keck Foundation gives USC $110 million

ontology Center, the interdisciplinary program in Neural, Informational and Behavioral Sciences, and in the College of Letters Arts and Sciences and School of Engineering.

Physicians and scientists at the USC-affiliated Childrens Hospital Los Angeles and Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center will also be part of the new initiative.

Historic Gift
USC is now the first university in history to secure three gifts of $100 million or more.

The W.M. Keck Foundation's $110 million gift is the third donation of $100 million or more made to USC during its current campaign, following gifts of $120 million by Ambassador Walter H. Annenberg to establish the USC Annenberg Center for Communication; and $100 million from Alfred E. Mann to establish the Mann Institute for Biomedical Engineering.

Figures tabulated by the Chronicle of Higher Education show that no other university has received three individual contributions of $100 million or more.

With the receipt of the Keck gift, the USC "Building on Excellence" campaign total now exceeds $1.4 billion toward a campaign goal of $1.5 billion. The campaign is scheduled to end December 31, 2000.
