MSS Media Inc. provides media buy and placement services each year for the USC Center for Diversity and Democracy as they work to promote their Good Neighbors Campaign. Charitable contributions to the fund are distributed to USC Neighborhood Outreach (UNO) grants and the United Way. Since the fund was created, nearly 550 grants totaling $17.5 million have been given to community organizations to enhance educational opportunities, promote good health and fitness, support economic development and USC hiring, and improve safety.



To reach their objectives, the school utilizes signage containing: 

  • QR codes that prospective donors can scan with their mobile phones to learn more
