Through your IRA

If you are 70½ or older, you may also be interested in a way to lower the income and taxes from your IRA withdrawals. With an IRA charitable rollover, you will benefit this year while also providing a charitable gift to Pace Academy.

How it works:

Contact your IRA plan administrator to make a gift from your IRA to Pace. Your IRA funds will be directly transferred to Pace.

Note: IRA charitable rollover gifts do not qualify for a charitable deduction.

Gift Acceptance Policy

Pace Academy welcomes philanthropic gifts from Donor Advised Funds (DAFs). In order to accept a gift or grant from a DAF, the following must apply: No donor or individual related to the donor will receive any goods, services or other more than incidental private benefits.  Examples may include but are not limited to: If the grant is for an event or gala, it does not pay for tickets or any goods purchased at auction.  If the grant is for a membership, the membership must be considered 100% tax deductible.  The payment may not be a bifurcated payment; meaning the donor-advised fund has provided the deductible portion and the donor intends to provide the non-deductible portion separately.  Any payment received that does not adhere to these guidelines will not be deposited, and the payment will be returned to the DAF.

At Pace Academy, gifts intended to pay for sponsorships or memberships with benefits from DAFs will not be accepted for the following events and programs: Pace Fall Fair, Knight Out With Keeping Pace, Alumni Knight Cap, Parents Club Auction, Pace Race, Queens of the Court, Arts Alliance memberships, Booster Club memberships.  Donors can make a gift from a DAF for the full amount of the sponsorship and forgo all benefits.
