    Make a Difference for Syracuse Students!

    When you make a gift to Syracuse University, you provide the students of today—and tomorrow—with unique educational experiences and the tools they need to succeed in a world that’s ever more complex. Here are just a few of the ways you can show your support.

    Support SU in DC 

    It’s easy to see the advantages a Washington, DC, presence brings to both students and alumni. Students are able to learn from the world’s leading experts, visit unmatched cultural institutions, and experience the challenges of living in a major metropolitan environment. Alumni can stay connected to the University and each other at lectures, networking nights, and other special events. 

    You can support SU in DC’s effrorts by designating your gift toward any of these funds:

    • Greenberg House Fund supports the operation of Greenberg House and its programs.
    • Greenberg House Facility Support Fund is used to create, improve and maintain the houses landscaping and other exterior features.
    • Greenberg House DC Community Partnership Initiative Fund supports initiatives developed with local nonprofits, such as SU in DC’s partnership with the Living Classrooms Foundation, an organization that strengthens communities and inspires young people to achieve their potential through hands-on education and job training.
    • DC Immersion Fund supports DC Immersion Week, a spring break trip that enables SU sophomores to experience living and working in Washington and Baltimore. Gifts to the fund help cover such program costs as bus service from Syracuse, weekly metro passes, overnight accommodations, and meals.

    Support Another Part of SU that’s Meaningful to You

    If your passion lies on Syracuse’s campus or in any of its other regional or international centers, you can direct your gift accordingly. Whether you decide to support the dean’s fund in your school or college, student scholarships, faculty recruitment and retention, academic programs, facilities, or research, your gift will make a real difference to current and future students.

    Endow a Washington, DC-Based Program

    Students from across Syracuse’s schools and colleges participate in DC immersion programs both large and small. Some programs last a full semester while others run through the summer, during winter or spring break, or even for one day. Regardless of the time frame, they provide students with unmatched access to the world beyond the Syracuse campus. Endowed gifts are particularly important, because they’re established to last in perpetuity. With only the payout from the fund spent each year, endowment gifts keep on giving—ensuring these one-of-a-kind learning experiences can continue, year after year.
