If there’s one problem the nonprofit world would love to solve, it’s how to increase funding. Information technology professor, Namchul Shin, researches the impact of social media on charitable donations.
This Giving Tuesday, the Pace Community answered the call and helped us surpass our goal of 1,000 gifts and raised an incredible $417,925.
1,204 Alumni, parents, faculty and staff, friends, and students came together to show their support for Pace University. These donors, hailing from 34 states and 3 countries, not only offered gifts, but also shared why they felt inspired to give. Some of those reasons include:
I give to Pace to give opportunity.
—Theodore W. '68
I know that Pace students and alumni have a unique sense of grit about them. We are go-getters, and I want to be able to support current Pace students in achieving their goals!
—Gabriella F. '16
I was a first-generation college student. I want to be sure there are opportunities for other students to have what I did.
—Susan B. '79, staff
I give because our students become alumni who do amazing things in the world.
—Michele C., staff
I'm in a position to give back because of what Pace gave me decades ago...A great education.

Because I love Pace!

Whether it was because of Pace's “life-changing opportunities,” or the fact that “our students become alumni who do amazing things in the world,” or simply because “I love Pace”, our community has shown just how much the believe in Pace. The $417,925 raised will go on to support innovative programs across all campuses, enhance the student experience, and help our students achieve their dreams.
