Pace Fundraising > Education

We have high standards and take pride in all we do.

PACE Fundraising has a history of providing consulting services across the continuum of fundraising within education communities large and small.  In America, personal, corporate, and foundation giving to education organizations is second only to faith-based organizations historically representing approximately 17% all charitable contributions annually.  Though positioned quite advantageously to raise capital for its mission, the education industry must maintain a competitive edge in a crowded nonprofit industry.

PACE Fundraising principals have direct experience within education.  Each served as a higher education executive or administrator.  This is important in understanding the unique “alma mater” position education often has with its contributors.  There is a distinct emotional attachment to gifts and their purpose.  PACE is adept at identifying motivations and maximizing contributions within education.  Our experience has taught us that there is no better environment to practice and witness donor evolution than education philanthropy.

Education is the foundation of progress affecting our culture for the common good.

We are true to ourselves, and commit to always perform at our best.
