About SPC

The Student Philanthropy Council (SPC) logo - Pepperdine University

The Student Philanthropy Council (SPC) is comprised of students who want to make a difference at Pepperdine. Our primary goal is to educate the student body on the importance of giving back, both as students and alumni. We acknowledge that each student is an internal stakeholder, and we encourage every student to place an annual vote of confidence in the University through a financial gift of any size. It is our goal to create a culture of philanthropy through multiple on-campus events and initiatives throughout the year.

Members of our council play a crucial role in creating new opportunities for student education as well as establishing future traditions and ideas.
