WAYS YOU CAN SUPPORT STUDENTS

  • General/Annual Fund – Unrestricted giving helps where it’s needed most! You may easily give directly online HERE.
  • PAASS – PAA Student Scholarships – you may give directly online HERE.
  • PAASS Auction – a fun way to contribute to student scholarships at our fall dinner and auction, the Sunday before Veterans Day, November 10, 2019.
  • PAA Cougar Sports Golf Tournament – the August golf tournament supports student athletes.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF TAX LAWS

  • Donate your required minimum distribution (RMD) directly to charity, thereby reducing your tax liability
  • Give through your estate plan by including a bequest in your will or trust. This is often the simplest and quickest way to provide future support for PAA, and has the potential to reduce your tax liability.
  • Fund a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust
  • Make an outright gift of an appreciated asset to charity.
  • Give from pre-tax assets by making an IRA rollover gift.
