What is ONE DAY FOR SYA?
The goal of ONE DAY FOR SYA is to bring awareness to the SYA community that we need your support! Many schools celebrate "Tuition Free Day," which symbolically marks the point in the year when tuition stops paying for the students' education and it becomes "free" thanks to financial support from generous donors. ONE DAY FOR SYA is our version, observed when paying for the year converts from tuition to giving, on April 17.
Most importantly, ONE DAY FOR SYA signifies the importance of people in the community who donate because they want to make the SYA experience possible for today's students. THANK YOU for all of those who have helped thus far!
We hope 100 alumni, parents and friends will show their SYA love by making a gift on April 17!
Your SYA Fund participation is important, and here’s why:
- High alumni participation is generally perceived to be an indicator of satisfaction with the SYA experience, often considered by prospective students and parents.
- Foundations are more likely to support an organization that already has a high level of support from its alumni community.
- Within our own alumni body, prospective top donors want to know that others are adding their support, at whatever level they can afford, before adding their own leadership support.
