What’s the goal?

This University-wide fundraising effort will benefit all schools, colleges, units, and programs. The goal is to inspire 4,444 donors to make a gift of any size to support current students as part of our Forever Orange Campaign.

How can I inspire others with a challenge?

This year’s website allows you to create a challenge or match gift and encourage anyone (your classmates, others interested in your fund, current students, etc.) to make gifts – and make an even bigger impact! Once you are signed in on this site, you will be able to create a unique tracking link (via the share buttons) and you will be able to see in real-time how many donors and dollars have come in because of YOU!

Where can I find updates?

Right here on this site you can track progress, learn about the different challenges, watch the live shows and see how many gifts you have inspired as an Orange advocate! Most important, you’ll be able to see the collective impact of so many people giving at the same time!

Can anyone participate in Syracuse Giving Day?

YES! We need our entire community to participate to have a successful day.

How can I make my gift to #CuseGivingDay?

Is my payment secure?

Yes. All payments will be processed using a secure online giving form. The information collected during #CuseGivingDay will be used solely by Syracuse University. You can also use PayPal or Venmo through our giving form!

Is there a minimum gift?

The minimum gift accepted is $5. Gifts of all size are welcome and appreciated. Collectively, these gifts add up to a big impact for current and future students.

Can I make a recurring gift?

Yes! You can set up a recurring gift on March 27, but only your first payment will count toward our goal for the day. Recurring gifts can only be accepted at: givetosu.syr.edu.

Do I have to support a specific fund for my gift to be counted?

Nope! We want you to support any area you’re passionate about. But we do hope you’ll consider giving to one of our priority funds shown in the drop down. Can’t decide? Consider supporting the Annual Fund, which supports the greatest needs of Syracuse University. 

What if I already made my annual gift this year?

Thank you for your generous support! We appreciate your commitment and encourage you to make another small gift during #CuseGivingDay to participate in the challenges. You can also encourage others to make their gift!

Is my gift tax-deductible?

Yes. You’ll receive a receipt for tax purposes immediately following your gift. Any questions about your receipt can be directed to Advancement Services at 315.443.1718 or sudonors@syr.edu.

What if I have questions?

Contact the Office of Alumni Engagement and Annual Giving at 315.443.1848 or giving@syr.edu.
