Fall E-Festival 2020
Thank you for your support! We raised $8,400 through our
Fall E-Festival this year. We so appreciate your generosity towards
PLP and our Helen Young Scholars.
Pepperdine Legacy Partners (PLP) has hosted an annual Fall Festival every year since the founding of Associated Women for Pepperdine in 1958, where guests would shop at our boutique in Malibu. Due to this year's health and safety concerns resulting from the coronavirus pandemic, Pepperdine Legacy Partners will host an online fundraising effort for the Helen Young Scholarship Fund from October 19–31, 2020 EXTENDED UNTIL NOVEMBER 13, 2020.
PLP aims to raise $10,000. All proceeds will be allocated toward the Helen Young Scholarship Fund for Pepperdine students. The fund will allow PLP to support 52 current scholarship recipients as well as increase offerings for the 2021–22 academic year.
Our event format has changed, but our cause remains the same. During our first-ever Fall E-Festival, consider giving a gift to help Pepperdine students.

"The blessings of attending Pepperdine are second to my relationship with God. During
the spring Campus Ministry retreat, I truly felt God's presence. The Holy Spirit filled
me and I was humbled. Thank you for your generosity and your interest in my life."
"At first I was anxious about attending Pepperdine, but I am grateful that I have followed
God in his will and that he has led me where I needed to go. Thank you so much for
your support. Your contribution is well received."
"This scholarship is a great help to my family and me. I came to Pepperdine, which
holds that "the truth, having nothing to fear from investigation, should be pursued
relentlessly in every discipline." I thoroughly enjoy the discussion that the academic
environment engenders on campus, both in and outside the classroom."
"Without your contribution, none of my past growth and future experiences as a Pepperdine
student would be possible. I am sincerely grateful for all you have done and will
continue to do for the Christian leaders of Pepperdine."
"Pepperdine has become my home, and I am so grateful for what you have given me. My
entire college experience would be completely different without you."
"I truly hope to be worthy of this scholarship through my years at Pepperdine. Wherever
God decides to send me, I know that my education at Pepperdine is a vital step toward
the accomplishment of my dreams. Thank you for helping me to draw closer to God's
plan for me."
"Your support and love that goes into each scholarship goes beyond the money. This
act of ministry has aided thousands of students for years. Thank you for your many
hours spent raising money and working over your limits to make sure this scholarship
stays alive. Thank you for your many days spent in deep prayer for me and my fellow
"I always desired to attend a private Christian college, and my dream has become a
reality because of people like you. I have a powerful desire to be part of a medical
missions team, and because of your generosity, I will be able to give back my talents
to those who have limited access to good healthcare."
"I promise I will make a positive impact on the Pepperdine community and hope to help
contribute to this scholarship when I graduate and have a job. Thank you for your
generosity and for believing in me."
"Not only will your aid assist in paving a road toward my dream career, but it grants
me access to the enriching spiritual environment of Pepperdine. I will continually
remember that you helped open the door to this exemplary university for me, which
has been a dream of mine to attend since I was a little girl."
"You have helped make so many opportunities, once mere hopes and far-fetched dreams,
into memories and treasured experiences that have helped shape me. I will forever
look at my time at Pepperdine as a chapter of immense growth, adventure, and discovery.
Thank you for your devotion to education, and to helping students like me have the
opportunity to thrive, both academically and spiritually, at an incredible University."
"In a pre-med field where many depend upon tangible, scientific evidence to determine
their beliefs, Pepperdine is giving me unduplicatable spiritual guidance that I know
makes God proud. This scholarship has provided, and will continue to provide me, with
the chance to earn a lifelong education that serves deeper than simple course descriptions;
for that, I am eternally grateful."
"Through the first connections I was able to make through PLP, I found that community
and a place I could call home. Through house groups, flea markets, receptions, and
even calls from my PLP prayer partner, all the way to Buenos Aires, Argentina, during
my sophomore year, the influence that PLP has had on my time at Pepperdine has been
"I am deeply thankful for this scholarship, which enables me to go to the highest-ranked
Church of Christ school in the nation. I'm aspiring to a future in nonprofit or government
service work, and Pepperdine is the best way for me to get there. I can continue to
develop my Christian faith while earning a prestigious degree, with a future that
"Without the contribution of the PLP scholarship, I doubt I would have been able to
experience such an enriching spiritual community at Pepperdine. I am infinitely thankful
for each and every opportunity that has been presented to deepen my faith during my
time at this school."
