Pace University Announces It`s Time: The Centennial Campaign for Pace University

It's Time

On April 24, 2007, Pace University announced the launch of its capital campaign, It’s Time: The Centennial Campaign for Pace University. Since the campaign began in 2003, Pace alumni/ae and friends have contributed more than $65 million in gifts and pledges toward the campaign’s $100 million goal. This comprehensive campaign, the most ambitious in the University’s 100-year history, is securing investments to fund scholarships and dynamic student opportunities; augment and support a highly talented faculty; create the campus of tomorrow with state-of-the-art technology and modern spaces for teaching and learning; and ensure top-flight academic programs.

Dyson College’s campaign goal is $13.5 million. To date, with the combined efforts of Adrienne Capps, Dyson’s Director of Development, Dean Nira Herrmann, and the Office of Philanthropy, Dyson College has raised $9.8 million, which represents 73 percent of our goal.

Here are the details of our progress:

  • 1,450 individuals, foundations and companies have contributed to date – 41 at $10,000 or greater.
  • For 26 of these top 41 donors (63%), it is the first major gift they have made to Pace University.
  • Fifteen new student scholarships have been established.
  • Seven have made commitments to increase their existing scholarship funds.
  • Six have included Dyson College in their estate plans either through a will or retirement account.

If you would like to help Dyson College reach its goal, please contact Adrienne Capps, acapps@pace.edu, (212) 346-1907.
