Boost the 'Cuse II Logo

Boost the ’Cuse II is Otto’s next big mission, and it’s going to be out of this world! Syracuse University’s second day of giving—a 24-hour campaign—starts at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, October 25, 2018. What’s our goal? To inspire at least 5,000 alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends to support the part of Syracuse they love most! Have questions? Check our FAQ. Want to help us promote Boost the ’Cuse? Visit our toolkit and share using #BoostCuse.

Choose Your Challenge


There’s a lot at stake on October 25. When each area of SU listed below reaches its participation goal, an additional $500,000+ will be unlocked for Syracuse University. This is all thanks to the generosity of board members from each area who are personally challenging the Orange community to step up and #BoostCuse. Boost the ’Cuse II will be a success only if you join Otto’s crew on October 25 with a gift to the part of SU you love most.

How does it work? 

Any gift to any fund that belongs to the units below counts toward that unit’s participation goal. For example, if you make a gift to the Football Head Coach’s Fund or the Athletic Director Discretionary Fund, then Athletics will be one donor closer to its goal. Once the goal is met, the funds listed will be released to the most flexible account belonging to that unit, ensuring the greatest overall impact.
