FAQ

What is Give2Pepp?

Give2Pepp is a 37-hour online fundraising event to bring the entire Pepperdine family—current students, alumni, faculty, staff, friends, and the local community—together in support of current and future Waves. In a world that has never been more divided, we are standing up as one to say, “We Are Pepp.” The 37-hour duration was chosen to honor our founding in 1937 and also to give Pepperdine friends in every time zone a chance to participate.

Why give on March 8, 2017?

When you give during Give2Pepp, you’ll be joining thousands of others in the Pepperdine community to show that together, “We Are Pepp.” You’ll also be able to choose from a variety of challenges that allow you to support your favorite school and programs.

What do gifts to Give2Pepp support?

The great thing about Give2Pepp is that you can designate your gift to your own area of passion or calling, while still being a part of the larger community. Each school or program has selected a few areas that need your support the most; all you have to do is choose your favorite.
