The Crest Associates are dedicated friends who support Pepperdine and work to forge stronger ties between our University and the Malibu and Los Angeles communities. Their financial gifts further Pepperdine's mission by supporting scholarships, programs, and distinguished faculty positions, and the partnerships their advocacy builds with local businesses, governments, and civic groups benefit both Pepperdine and Southern California as a whole.
Crest Associates' efforts help Pepperdine extend its reach and create innovative new opportunities for students and faculty alike. They also help connect the University with opportunities to use its expertise and resources to address pressing civic issues ranging from homelessness and equal justice to sustainability and conservation.
As partners in the important work Pepperdine does to improve quality of life throughout our community, Crest Associates are able to share in the University's world-class recreation, theater, and library facilities, as well as cultural and social events organized through the Associates program.
The efforts of this esteemed group help prepare our students for lives of purpose, service, and leadership, giving them the opportunity to make a difference as dynamic and productive individuals in the community.
