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.
