Campaign Leadership


Greetings from the Campaign Chairs

Marylyn M. Warren and Glen A. Holden - Pepperdine UniversityWhen we began the Campaign for Pepperdine, we had one key objective: to tell our story well and in a way that invites all of our alumni and friends to be both involved and invested in our future. Lucky for us, Pepperdine has always had a good story, beginning with the daring tale of an entrepreneur who founded a Christian college in the heart of Los Angeles and now penning a new and defining chapter—the triumphant conclusion of the University's third and largest-ever fundraising campaign.

For the past decade, we've shared our story—along with the thousands more of our alumni and students—and we count with pride the more than 49,000 donors who responded with gifts to the campaign. We gratefully acknowledge the 25,000 new alumni, friends, faculty, staff, foundations, and corporations who made their first gift to Pepperdine. Every dollar donated is being put to work for the mission of the University and the students we serve.

Our goals have been realized with a generous $44 million in annual support dollars to our schools and programs, more than $140 million in new faculty and academic initiatives, and an incredible $141 million in new scholarship funds and support for students. Gifts to the campaign have also made possible more than $114 million in campus improvements, including key international facilities, the beautiful Mullin Town Square, and our future University Events Center.

From the Office of the Chair, we are humbled by the extraordinary talent and generosity of all who participated in this quest. We are grateful to have served alongside the chairs of the various campaign committees and to each volunteer who was a fervent ambassador of this unique institution. Your allegiance to this campaign is the reason for its success, and we are blessed to have had your leadership on this journey.

In the coming years, students, faculty, and leaders of the University will continue to write its exceptional story, endlessly enriched by the campaigns before it. Thank you for the role you've played in shaping Pepperdine's future—indeed its destiny—as it remains committed, now and forever, to changing lives across the globe.
