Waves Give

Helping our student-artists and student-athletes perform at the highest level.

Waves Give 2024 was a resounding success, thanks to the generosity of our Pepperdine students, parents, alumni, and friends. The Pepperdine University community came together to support our talented student-artists and student-athletes with extraordinary generosity on our annual day of giving. This exceptional show of support is a testament to the unbreakable spirit and unity of the Pepperdine family. Our community's commitment has once again shined, highlighting the significant place of arts and athletics in the heart of our institution. These programs are not just a part of Pepperdine—they are a driving force behind our success and the vibrant culture that makes our university truly unique.

With over 1000 gifts and a total of $526,413 raised, we certainly met and exceeded our $500,000 goal. We would like to express our deepest appreciation to the countless volunteers who made phone calls and rallied support for this event. Your enthusiasm and dedication were instrumental in reaching this incredible milestone.
