USC alumni are sparking change by combining social impact with corporate gifting.

After spending years working in both nonprofit and corporate fields, USC alumna Laura Hertz launched Gifts for Good, a full-fledged social enterprise company which has already funded a year of drinking water for nearly 900 people in Central Africa.

“We’re all over the board in the types of impact that we’ve had, but it’s been super exciting to see what we can do, just by redirecting some of the dollars that people already spend for good,” Hertz said.

Founded in November by Hertz and fellow USC alumnus Jerry Eisenberg, the company focuses on providing corporations with gift options that give back to charitable causes.
