The Power of Us! Annual Employee Giving Program

Through the Upstate Foundation, your gift supports Upstate Medical University’s mission… patient care, education and research, which positively impacts community health and well-being. 

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 and research. 100 percent of your donation goes to the fund(s) that you choose. 

Together, we are making a difference!

Giving is easier than you think!

1. CHOOSE A FUND  that is meaningful to you. Let giving be gratifying! Search online on the fund search page, or see the partial listing below.

2. SELECT THE PAYMENT method that is most convenient for you: cash, check, credit card or payroll deduction where your payments are divided over 26 weeks starting July 1. Each pay period, the designated amount is automatically withdrawn from your paycheck. 

3. USE THE E-PLEDGE OPTION… through your Self-Serve login and click on The Power of Us! logo.

SIGN UP for payroll deduction by June 14, 2019.

Anyone signing up after the deadline will have fewer weeks to make their donation. Payroll deduction runs from 7/1 - 6/30 annually.
