Cause for the 'Cuse 2016

Join us for the fourth annual Cause for the ’Cuse, a clothing and school supply drive that directly benefits students in the Syracuse City School District.

DATES: Donations can be made throughout the year. Information on future fundraising events will be shared as they become available.

HOW TO DONATE We all call Syracuse home, and we want to ensure the students in the Syracuse City School District are provided opportunities to succeed. It is important that students have the resources necessary to develop their own paths to success — we can’t do it alone.

We’ll be collecting donations until December 31, 2016. Accepted physical donations include school supplies, clothing (including underwear and socks), and outerwear. Please send an email to to schedule a drop-off. Monetary donations can be made via cash or checks made out to Terakeet. Online donations will be available soon. All funds raised 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 that has been developed throughout the organization, and believe our strength is rooted in the ways in which we empower one another to succeed.

As we look to give as much back to the community as possible, it is your continued support that allows us to reach our goal year after year. Thank you!

Last Year’s Cause


In 2015, Terakeet came together with local businesses and community members to donate over $10,000 worth of school supplies to local schools. Over the past three years, Cause for the Cuse has provided over $36,000 worth of school supplies and clothing to the students of the Syracuse City School District. These donations include backpacks, notebooks, binders, pencils, pens, crayons, winter coats, boots, and much more. We’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who contributed to our cause in 2015!
