Kurt and Emma Rose Trust provides $3.5 million to USC/Norris

A $3.5 MILLION GIFT from the Kurt and Erma Rose Trust will help establish up to six new endowed chairs at the USC/ Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The gift will also fund a new program to recognize those who have included the USC/Norris in their wills.
The Rose bequest will prove to be among “the most important gifts the Norris has ever received,” predicts Bill Watson, director of development.
The first $3 million from the bequest will be divided into $500,000 “lead gifts” toward the $1.5 million needed to fully fund a chair.
“This gives individuals who may not be able to give more than $1 million the ability to endow a chair in their name,” he said.

THE ROSE GIFTalso establish the Kurt and Erma Rose Heritage Circle, to encourage other individuals like the Roses to include USC/Norris in their wills.
“We’ve had dozens of individuals step forward and let us know we’ve been given revocable trusts in their wills,” Watson said.
“We hope to recognize them and others who may not yet have identified themselves so we can demonstrate the importance of their gifts to us.”
