Accelerate Pace Alumni Challenge

This campaign ended on May 31, 2021, but you can still make a gift to Pace Academy by clicking here!

Please join us in the Accelerate Pace Alumni Challenge! 

The centerpiece of the campaign’s first phase is the new Kam Memar Lower School, which addresses Pace’s longstanding need to add space for its youngest students. From STEAM classrooms, to performance space and a renovated library, this Campaign touches almost every point of the Lower School. And, most exciting to our students, an accessible, expanded playground—”the world’s greatest!” 
Learn more about our plans and construction here!

Accelerate Pace provides a meaningful opportunity for all alumni to give back to Pace—and support is vitally needed to help Pace reach the $35 million phase-one goal. Right now, all alumni gifts and pledges will be doubled, thanks to an anonymous donor who has issued an Accelerate Pace Alumni Challenge—a 100% match for all alumni gifts and pledges received by May 31, 2021, up to $500,000!

Every gift matters. Help Accelerate Pace. Give Today! 


The Challenge runs until May 31, 2021. While gifts to Accelerate Pace are celebrated year-round, only those gifts submitted by the deadline will count toward the match.
