Syracuse University’s seventh Chancellor, William P. Tolley, had a strategic vision that would redefine the University. By opening the doors to any returning service member who aspired to receive a college education, he effectively ignited the spark for unprecedented growth.
Within two years, campus enrollment tripled. His vision helped transform Syracuse University into one of the largest private universities in the nation, while creating many military-connected programs that endure across campus.
Flash forward 70 years and Chancellor Kent Syverud also has a compelling vision. During his 2014 inaugural speech, he announced that one of his four strategic priorities was to “once again make Syracuse University the best place for veterans.” The University is now dedicated to becoming the national exemplar by providing opportunity and empowering our nation’s veterans and their families.
The Leadership Circle is comprised of a powerful group of supporters who provide unrestricted operating funds essential to our mission and help shape the future of Syracuse University’s veteran and military-connected students and employees.
Members make a gift of at least $1,000 per year for a minimum of five years, which equates to a total pledge of $5,000 to the Veteran Legacy Fund.
See below for example:
Jane Donor wishes to join the Veteran Legacy Fund Leadership Circle with a gift of $1,000 per year for five years ($5,000). Upon navigating to the giving page, she sees that she can set up scheduled payments and enters in a total gift amount of $5,000. Based on her preference, she opts to make monthly installments of $83.33 for a total of 60 months, or five years.
*Payments can be made: Lump Sum || Monthly || Quarterly || Semiannually || Annually
