Shared Donated Bodies
Cost for Family, Heirs, or Estate
The Gift of Body Program will arrange, and pay transportation (within state only), embalming, cremation, delivery/interment costs and all expenses associated with the USC Donor Memorial Service (all arrangements will be made through the USC program, any costs incurred due to family-requested departure from the established program protocol must be covered by the donor’s family. Any such departures must be discussed before final acceptance). Any private ceremonies remain the responsibility of the family.
NOTE: For current donors who have moved outside of the state of South Carolina and do not wish to transfer to a local donor program, the family must agree to pay the cost of transportation for continued acceptance in the USC Gift of Body Program.
