Ways to Give

Pepperdine University is committed to working with you as an individual to design and implement a charitable gift plan that works best for you. Planned giving enables a donor to arrange charitable contributions in ways that maximize his or her personal objectives while minimizing taxes. Depending on the asset given and the gift arrangement selected, a donor can realize substantial benefits while still supporting the students of Pepperdine.

Maybe you are wondering why you should make a charitable gift or what it means to make a planned gift. The following material is designed to explain the basic structures and benefits associated with the various ways to give to Pepperdine. With this material we attempt to demystify the process and provide a foundational understanding of the various charitable gift vehicles. We hope that after reading this material you are not only more educated, but also motivated to give to the students of Pepperdine Univeristy.
