History of the Foster Grandparent Program

Pepperdine University has served as a sponsor of the Foster Grandparent Program since 1972. This program is a staple of the Pepperdine family, originating at the first campus on 79th and Vermont. Through this long-standing commitment, Pepperdine facilitates and manages collaborations between community service agencies, schools, educators, and volunteers willing to serve those most in need.

 

The Golden Jubilee

2022 will mark the 50th Anniversary of the Foster Grandparent Program (FGP) with Pepperdine University. Leading up to 2022, the FGP Advisory Committee is planning fundraisers and special events to commemorate the Golden Jubilee!
