Gifts made to Pace University support virtually every area of campus life from academics to financial aid to the arts. Tuition and fees cover only a portion of the cost of a Pace University education, so private support is essential to maintaining the University's caliber of programs. It provides the margin of excellence needed to attract and support the brightest students, to recruit and retain world-class faculty, to build and renovate vital teaching and research facilities, to fund critical research projects, to create innovative teaching programs, and to enhance library holdings and services. 

Additionally, the U.S. News & World Report university rankings are directly related to alumni giving. Your participation as alumni helps to maintain the competitiveness of the degree you earned and raises the ranking of your alma mater. Unrestricted gifts help the area of greatest need at the University; gifts to the specific schools help the area of greatest need at the designated school. Your gifts help support the dreams of our students by allowing the University to recruit and retain exemplary faculty.
