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 line HERE.
  • PAASS Golf Tournament – specifically to raise funds for student scholarships on Alumni Weekend, Sunday, May 5, 2019
  • PAASS Auction – a fun way to contribute to student scholarships at our fall dinner and auction, the Sunday before Veterans Day, Nov. 10, 2019
  • PAA Cougar Sports Golf Tournament – the August golf tournament is a great way to support our student athletes

Take advantage of tax laws by:

  • Donating your required minimum distribution (RMD) directly to charity, thereby reducing your tax liability
  • Giving 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.
  • Funding a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust
  • Making an outright gift of an appreciated asset to charity
  • Giving from pre-tax assets by making an IRA rollover gift
