About Bequests
About Planned Giving
Planned giving is the process of making provisions for a future charitable gift, most commonly in your will or estate plan. For most people, a planned gift is the most impactful gift they will make in their lifetime. Planned gifts to Pace Academy primarily support the school's endowment, securing its future for the children and grandchildren of today's students—and all future generations.

Planned gifts provide donors the additional benefit of not affecting current cash flow, and can often be arranged to have minimal impact on total estate value. Many planned gifts provide tax-favorable benefits, and even income, to the donor and beneficiaries.

A bequest through your will or a trust is one of the most popular and flexible planned giving vehicles, and is a significant way you can further Pace's mission. More
