Phonathon

At the Pace University Phonathon, students contact alumni, parents, and friends of the University in order to reconnect the Pace community and secure support. Speaking with our students is a great way to learn about important campus news, events and how you can reconnect with the university. What better way to hear about the importance of supporting Pace than from a student who will benefit from your generosity right now!

When you get a call, feel free to ask questions about all the latest Pace happenings! An alumnus sharing his or her collegiate experiences with a Phonathon student through the telling of priceless stories spreads invaluable wisdom and teaches the student the importance of investing in Pace.

Pace Phonathon students work in the Office of Development and Alumni Relations and make outgoing calls from 646-218-5037.

 
Planned Gifts, Donor-Advised Funds and IRA Charitable Rollovers
Certain gifts may impact your estate planning or retirement planning. For example, you may wish to designate Pace at your death for a gift in your Will or life insurance policy, or your IRA, 401(k) plan, or 403(b) plan. Planned Gifts that are made during lifetime typically include a charitable gift annuity, a charitable lead trust or charitable remainder trust, and an IRA charitable rollover. Information about how to make these types of gifts can be found at our Pace planned giving webpage, www.plannedgiving.pace.edu. While you are visiting that page, please be sure to visit the "Why We Give" link.

Stock and other property
Making a gift of securities is easy and you can avoid capital gains on appreciated properties while helping Pace University at the same time. You have two options, described below, for transferring stock to the University. If neither of these options pertains to your situation, please call us at (212) 346-1232 or email us at annfund@pace.edu.

If your stock is held by a broker, they can wire the shares directly to one of Pace’s brokers (Merrill Lynch or UBS). Please contact us at pacealum@pace.edu for broker details.

IMPORTANT: Please inform Pace University of the details and purpose of the transfer. Include your name, address, name of stock, number of shares, and your broker’s name.
