Who we are

For more than 100 years, Advocates for Upstate has supported healthcare and scholarship at Upstate Medical University through its fundraising and service initiatives.

Supporting programs to enhance patient care

Since 2000 alone, we have awarded more than $4 million in grants to benefit patient care, patient education and community health outreach programs.

Adult and Youth Scholarship Programs

  • Our Youth Scholarships are awarded to qualifying teens who have given dedicated time to volunteer at Upstate University Hospital and/or Upstate Community Hospital.
  • Our Nellie Hurley Scholarships are awarded to qualifying Upstate employees and adult volunteers to pursue studies in the health professions.

We welcome your support

We could not accomplish all that we do without support from our contract partners and from people like you!
