“Say Yes is one of the best programs I have been introduced too. Without Say Yes I would not have gone to, or been able to attend college.”

Representatives from the Say Yes Syracuse community partnership have announced a $20 million grant from a New York State economic development initiative that will enable the partners to fully fund the Say Yes Syracuse Scholarship endowment.

When combined with $10 million already raised by the community partnership from private and public donations, for a total of $30 million, the fund is intended to send every qualifying graduate of the Syracuse City Schools to an in-state public college or university, tuition-free, in perpetuity. Syracuse becomes the first of Say Yes’ community-wide chapters to reach that milestone.
