It’s officially called the Summer Literacy Clinic, but there’s much more to it than one-on-one reading and tutoring. True, when you enter the library of Roberts PreK-8 School in the Syracuse City School District (SCSD), you see third- and fourth-grade…
Boost the ’Cuse is Underway
Boost the ’Cuse: 44 Hours for Syracuse University is underway—and we need YOU to make these 44 hours of giving as legendary as the number itself.
The #BoostCuse clock started at 4 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5, as members of the Orange community around the world came together in a race against the clock. The goal? To inspire 5,000 donors to support Syracuse before 11:59 p.m. Nov. 6.
Join the #BoostCuse fun at one of our on-campus locations! Check out the on-campus schedule, and don’t miss Wednesday night’s tailgate at Dineen Hall (7-9 p.m.) leading up to the season-opening men’s basketball game against the University of Virginia.
Throughout the 44 hours, students will search for stuffed Ottos hidden around campus. Students who find one can designate challenge money donated by the Generation Orange Leadership Council to the part of Syracuse University that means the most to them.
“I wouldn’t be here at Syracuse without the scholarship that came about because of the generosity of others who support Syracuse University,” says Anthony Dabbundo ’21, a member of the Forever Orange Student Alumni Council and dual-major studying broadcast and digital journalism and policy studies.
“I’m excited to support our Boost the ’Cuse efforts to ensure future students can take advantage of and benefit from all of the tremendous resources available on campus. It’s important for current students to give back.”
How to Participate
There is no minimum gift amount. What matters most is that members of the Syracuse community give back to the part of Syracuse they’re most passionate about. Collectively, each gift adds up to make a big impact for current and future students.
There are three ways to give during the 44 hours of Boost the ’Cuse:
Online: Make your gift at on the Boost the ‘Cuse website.
