About the Campaign
It all started with an idea: to embark upon an extraordinary fundraising quest that would have the power to change the life of every Pepperdine student. More than just new scholarships or facilities or research and programs, a dream was brought to life to create a comprehensive campaign for Pepperdine whose impact could transform students with every dollar given.
Between 2005 and 2014, that dream became a reality. Despite the worst economic recession since the Great Depression and a downward trend in philanthropic support, alumni and friends passionately gave millions of dollars to Pepperdine, enabling its bold vision and unlocking new potential for an institution of higher learning.
Now, because of you, we've raised an unprecedented $470 million, empowering us to impact every student and the communities they serve. We have secured our position in the pantheon of higher education and, with your support, have forever elevated our stature as a preeminent, global, Christian university. Thank you.
