Makhani Legacy Tree

USC’s Trojan Family is legendary for its lifelong, worldwide impact. The tight-knit, supportive network provides an instant yet lasting connection for generation after generation of graduates, helping them blossom and flourish. 

Year in and year out, alumni and friends give their time and resources to advance the school’s mission as well as mentor, train and support up-and-coming leaders in the field. It is fitting that they now have the opportunity to commemorate their commitment by naming a leaf on the school’s new legacy tree. Located prominently on a wall in the Pharmaceutical Sciences Center, the legacy tree will serve as an enduring reminder of the alumni and donors who foster the school’s continued growth.

A leadership gift from David Makhani, PharmD ‘87, and his wife Sheila, is launching the project, which will be named the David and Sheila Makhani Family Legacy Tree. The Makhani family maintains deep roots in the profession. Third-generation pharmacists David and his brother Robert own fertility pharmacy MDR Pharmaceutical Care, which helps patients become parents. A fourth generation of Makhani pharmacists has arrived; David’s son Evan is a student at USC.

With a $500 donation, any alumnus, student or friend of the school can name their own leaf on the tree. All proceeds will support student scholarships.
