Accelerate Pace Alumni Giving Challenge

64% of $1,500,000 goal
This campaign ended on January 10, 2022, but you can still make a gift to Pace Academy by clicking here!

It's that time of year again—join us for the Alumni Giving Challenge!

This October, the school proudly opened the new Kam Memar Lower School, the centerpiece of the Accelerate Pace capital campaign. The Lower School now has the space and facilities needed to provide today’s students the comprehensive, innovative education required to prepare them for the future. This includes new classrooms for STEAM, music, and the arts, as well as an indoor gymnasium, renovated library and cafeteria, and of course, The World’s Greatest Playground.

Although the new facilities are in use, we still have nearly $6 million to raise by the end of the year. And that's why we need you to help make a difference! Annual alumni giving has traditionally hovered under 10%, and we know we can do better. If you have never given before, now is the time.

The priority for alumni is participation—every gift no matter the size makes a difference. We invite you to give $50, $100, or perhaps the amount of your graduation year! You may make a one-time gift or a pledge over a period up to five years. Our aim is for every graduate to participate; additionally, we won't knock on your door for a donation to the Pace Fund this spring—a gift to Accelerate Pace covers the bases for all alumni giving this school year.

This year, we are doing a competition by decades. Show your school spirit and make your decade proud! We especially challenge our Lifers whose Pace ties run deep.

Help us Accelerate Pace. Give a one-time gift today. For pledges, please submit online.


The Alumni Challenge runs from December 1, 2021-January 7, 2022
