2014 Upstate Community Giving Campaign

A Message from the Community Giving Campaign Co-Chairs:

We are pleased to announce Upstate's 2014 Community Giving Campaign. More than 600 agencies benefit from your support.

The generosity of Upstate's employees has made our campaign one of the most successful in the SUNY system and in Central New York. Last year, 1,414 Upstate employees (18%) raised $586,649. We hope that you will join us in participating in this important initiative and help us reach our goal to increase employee participation to 20%.

On September 29, you will receive an e-mail from the United Way with a link to ePledge. This is an easy way to donate to the campaign and take advantage of the two-week incentive promotion. You may be one of the $100 daily winners! If you do not have computer access at work or home, please call 464-4836 or email Kristin Thompson ( to be eligible for our ePledge promotion.

Once again, Zanette Howe is the campaign director and Dan Hurley will handle leadership gifts ($1,000 and up) through the Hamilton White campaign. If you have any questions, please contact Zanette (464-4263 or or Dan (464-4832 or

We hope you will find it possible to support Upstate's Community Giving Campaign. Your participation, at any level, is essential to our success and the well being of thousands in our community and beyond. Together, our gifts will help build a stronger future for our neighbors, families, and friends.
