First 100 Days

Welcome—and thank you for supporting our worthy students by giving to and being a part of the First 100 Days campaign. The energy and enthusiasm we built in our first 100 days will help us scale the mountains ahead of us and lift Pepperdine to new heights of achievement. No single person can make that happen alone, so I am especially grateful to you for joining us as we ascend together.

–President Jim Gash


What You've Helped Us Accomplish

The First 100 Days campaign was a remarkable success, with nearly every goal met—or exceeded—in terms of gathering resources and making personal connections. But these milestones are about more than just raising money, shaking hands, or signing up new Associates. They show just how much our worldwide Pepperdine community can accomplish when we unite for a common purpose. Whether you made a major gift to the University or shared your time with President Gash at a campus luncheon, you played a part in that success—and we hope it has strengthened your confidence that, with the same sense of unity and purpose, we can ascend to even greater heights of achievement and excellence in the months and years to come. We're grateful for your help in getting this far, and we look forward to continuing Pepperdine's extraordinary journey with you.

Join Us

President Gash has been humbled to have had the opportunity to share his vision for Pepperdine and to hear from you about your hopes for our University's next chapter. Now, as we reflect on his First 100 Days and beyond, your support still counts to make our bold Pepperdine dreams a reality. No matter the size of your gift, you will make a real difference as we work toward Pepperdine's future and ascend together.
