Many people embrace the new year with hope, especially after such a difficult year and as we continue to work through this on-going pandemic. Some of us still hope to lose weight, quit smoking, or hope that somehow the new year will be better than the old. This year more than ever, most of us hope for good health. However, sometimes the unfortunate occurs, and hospitalization results. We would like to take this opportunity to tell you about the annual fund for Upstate University Hospitals, which helps to provide for the needs of our patients and their families. We hope you will consider giving to the annual fund.

Called Friend in Deed, the annual fund is an important financial resource for many clinical programs and patient services at the hospital. In fact, it may surprise you to know that often it is the only potential source of funding for these programs and services and many of those needs were more severe because of the pandemic. Further, a gift to Friend in Deed reaches well beyond the hospital; it contributes to the overall health of our community. 

Every year, requests for funding from Friend in Deed exceed the amount raised, putting us in the very difficult position of deciding which worthwhile endeavors to fund...or not. Your donation is important, especially since Upstate University Hospitals no longer receive any operating support from the state of New York. Thank you in advance for your gift to Friend in Deed!
