These organizations and the events they conduct are varied in nature, as are the causes they support. In 2020, there were over 35 Facebook fundraisers alone, totaling nearly $36,000. 

The Upstate Foundation shares information before and after events in support of individuals, organizations and companies. Follow us on Facebook at The Upstate Foundation.
