The Power of Us! Annual Employee Giving Program

Your gift supports Upstate Medical University’s mission… patient care, education, research, and community health and well-being. Upstate's employees have a major impact on the health of our community through their service and their philanthrophy. Thank you for being an involved member of our Upstate family.

Each spring, you can support Upstate Medical University in a way that is meaningful to you by donating through the Upstate Foundation’s The Power of Us program. The program allows you to donate directly to any Foundation fund – there are over 900 funds representing all areas of Upstate’s mission of patient care, education, research, and community health and well-being. 100 percent of your donation goes to the fund(s) that you choose. 

Together, we are making a difference!
