3 Reasons to Become a Member of Believe in Syracuse:
1. Free Access to the Birthday Party: Every year we celebrate another year of our work to convert local pride into progress, improving the quality of life in Syracuse. However it's also a celebration of all the great things happening in CNY and this year it will focus on the local arts community! Our 2017 Believe in Syracuse Awards will be presented to Symphoria who has an incredible story, rising from the ashes of Syracuse Stage, and Carrie Lazarus for her work promoting extraordinary young talent in the arts. This years event will feature free birthday cake, free food samples from folks like Dinosaur BBQ and Sky Armory and free beverage samples from the likes of Empire Brewery and Greenwood Winery! All of this is free with your membership donation of $25. It's an amazing event.
2. Member Benefits Year Round: This is really more than just one reason! Besides being able to attend the Birthday Party for free, you will gain all the following perks for a year: Members will be listed in our online membership directory (optional) which provides great networking.

3. Support our Mission: Believe in Syracuse converts pride into progress. We inspire pride in the Greater Syracuse Area via social media, traditional media and events. We convert that excitement and energy into progress for programs that make a difference in the quality of life in CNY. We organize volunteers to get books to kids, serve meals to the hungry and teach inner city kids that reading is fun. We started a Northside Team and a Southside Team who beautify their neighborhoods and organize on a grassroots level. We also worked with 40 Below to triple the size of the Come Home to Syracuse event this year which retains and attracts people to live in CNY.
