Community events

Each year, community organizations from across Upstate’s service area hold events and fundraisers that benefit patient care, education and research at Upstate. These organizations and the events they conduct are varied in nature, as are the causes they support, yet they all share the values of ingenuity, commitment and generosity.

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