Giving Opportunities

In keeping with Pepperdine's motto, freely ye received, freely give, the AWP hopes that you will join others in making a donation to the organization.  It is realized that many students are burdened with student loans.  Any size and type of gift is appreciated.  Donations to the AWP ensure that debt is greatly reduced for students from the Churches of Christ.

Evelyn Clark AWP Endowment Fund

This fund is independent of the Scholarship Fund; scholarship funds are distributed annually. The Evelyn Clark AWP Endowment Fund is a permanent, perpetual fund. Money donated is invested and only the interest accrued is used for scholarships. By putting the Evelyn Clark AWP Endowment Fund in your will, you will be assured the money will always be there earning dollars for student scholarships.

Memorial gifts go into the Evelyn Clark AWP Endowment Fund. Helen Pepperdine and Helen M. Young membership donations may be applied to the Evelyn Clark AWP Endowment Fund as well.

Types of Gifts

  • Cash, Check, or Charge
    Making a gift of cash, check, or charge is the most common way a person can support the AWP.
  • Securities
    Gifts of stocks and bonds can offer special charitable opportunities for donors. However, prospective donors should consult with professional advisors and University staff before making such gifts.

    Gifts of property are accepted, provided they comply with the real estate policy of the University.
  • Estate and Gift Planning
    Planned gifts can be arranged through a will, trusts, insurance, annuities, or the University’s donor-advised fund.
