A Fundraising branch of the Boone Center for the Family

The purpose of the Friends of the Family League is to enrich the work of the Boone Center for the Family at Pepperdine University by raising annual and endowment funds, thus sustaining the Center's educational and training programs. The goal of the Friends of the Family League is to raise the greatest amount of money at the least expense.  The Friends of the Family League hosts the annual fundraiser Savvy Chic.

Goals and Objectives

The long-term goal of the Friends of the Family League is to become a self-supporting auxiliary for the extraordinary continuing education programs and practical training that the Center provides. Its fund-raising objective is to underwrite the Center's annual and long-term operational costs, including staffing and communication expenses and its programs for church leaders, young adults, couples, and families. The League also will strive to cover the annual cost of prominent guest speakers booked for campus lectures. Each of these activities promises an enormous opportunity to introduce, reaffirm, or restore the precious bonds of family for thousands of potential participants. It is the League's hope to sustain the quality, diversity, and availability of these efforts to an increasingly broad audience, and to enrich the institution of family within a complex and challenging society.
