The Power of Us!

Your gift supports Upstate Medical University’s mission… Patient Care, Education and Research

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 threefold mission of patient care, education and research. One-hundred percent of your donation goes to the fund(s) 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.

2. SELECT THE PAYMENT method that is most convenient for you: cash, check, credit card or payroll deduction. Payroll deduction spreads out your payments over the course of a year, from July 1 - June 30. Each pay period, the designated amount is automatically withdrawn from your paycheck.

3. SIGN UP for payroll deduction by June 16, 2017, using the 2017 Employee Donation Form (see bottom of post)

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

If you need a form, please download a form from the bottom of this page.

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.
