Cause for the 'Cuse 2015

Join us for the third annual Cause for the ’Cuse, a clothing and school supply drive to benefit students in the Syracuse City School District.

DATES: Online donations can be made now. Information on future fundraising events will be shared as they become available.

HOW TO DONATE We’ll be collecting donations until December 31, 2015. Physical donations can include any school supplies, backpacks, clothing (including basics like underwear and socks) and outerwear like coats, hats and gloves. Please send an email to to schedule a physical drop off appointment. Monetary donations can be made online through our YouCaring page or via cash/check made out to the Corcoran PTSO, a registered non-profit that will serve as the holding band for all donated funds. All proceeds will go towards the purchase of clothing and school supplies for students.

Terakeet has deep roots in the Syracuse area. We value the sense of community we’ve developed as an organization and we feel the closeness of a family. One thing communities and families do is come together to support each other, and we believe our strength is rooted in the ways in which we empower one another to succeed.

Natives and transplants alike, we all love this city and call it home. With everything Syracuse has done for us, it’s time for us to give back. We want to ensure Syracuse students enjoy the same opportunities this city has given us and have the resources necessary to develop their own paths to success–but we can’t do it alone.

Thanks everyone for your support! Together, we hope to make Cause for the ’Cuse 2015 even bigger and better than last year.

    Mr. Terakeet

    Mr. Terakeet is a festive, comical pageant benefiting the Cause For The ‘Cuse charity. Join us for an evening of entertainment by some of Terakeet’s most ‘talented’ men at the palatial Landmark Theatre. Drinks will be available, and event proceeds and raffles from local businesses will all support the charity: providing supplies and clothing for kids in the Syracuse City School District. Doors will open at 6:00 PM with a cash bar and raffles available. The show will begin at 7:00 PM. For tickets, please visit the Mr. Terakeet Eventbrite page.

Last Year’s Cause


In 2014, Terakeet came together with local businesses and community members to donate over $20,000 worth of school supplies and clothing to students of Syracuse city schools. The donations included backpacks, notebooks, binders, pencils, pens, crayons, markers, winter coats and hats, and more. We’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who contributed to our cause in 2014!
