Boost the ’Cuse II Launches Tomorrow
Boost the ’Cuse II, Syracuse University’s 24-hour day of giving, is tomorrow, Oct. 25. With Otto leading the mission, the goal of Boost the ’Cuse II is to inspire at least 5,000 alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students and friends to make a gift to SU.
Students, faculty and staff members are invited to the Shaw Quad to make a gift and celebrate what promises to be an extraordinary day for Syracuse University.
Here’s the Quad schedule:
10 a.m. Coffee and donuts
11 a.m. Cash grab challenge (supported by the Generation Orange Leadership Council)
Noon Selfies with Pete Sala
1 p.m. Student performances
2 p.m. Cake, cookies and hot chocolate bar
Our tent on the Quad will also be buzzing from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday evening before the Syracuse Men’s Basketball game. Stop by any time.
Members of the Syracuse community have three ways to give on Thursday:
Online: Make your gift at Mission Control.
By phone: Call 315.443.1848 or watch for a call from one of our student callers.
In person: Visit the tent on the Quad, or visit the tables in the schools, colleges and Bird Library.
Thanks to the generosity of Syracuse University’s school, college and unit boards, over $700,000 in challenge funds are available. Donors who support specific areas will unlock challenge funds that will go towards scholarships, the deans’ funds, and the Annual Fund. Challenges are detailed at Mission Control.
Also, across the country, several alumni clubs will be hosting day-of gatherings to celebrate alumni philanthropy.
Don’t Miss a Minute
All members of the Syracuse University community are invited to track progress throughout the day at Mission Control. Additionally, look for the nine-foot rocket on the Quad, which will represent our progress during the day.
Together, we’ll send Syracuse to new heights on Thursday!
