Pepperdine Student Crisis Fund

The Pepperdine community has been impacted by crises in recent years, with each of the university's five schools establishing a Student Emergency Fund so that all students can continue to receive the instruction, support, and access to opportunities they deserve in serious times of need. With the support of our community, each of these funds has been able to steward both undergraduate and graduate students through a variety of crises. Now more than ever, our students stand in need of your support.

Pepperdine University's Student Care Team assesses needs on a case by case basis and continues to utilize the Student Emergency Fund to help mitigate the negative, and especially financial, impact on students due to the current global pandemic. With the support of our community, this fund has provided critical support, helping over 100 students find emergency shelter, purchase food and supplies, and travel home.
Although the unprecedented nature of the COVID-19 crisis has prompted an outpouring of compassion, there remains an overwhelming need for support and care. Please consider joining the Pepperdine community in shepherding students through this difficult time by making a gift to the Student Emergency Fund of your choice. Your support will ensure that our community gets through this crisis together.
