Upson recognizes its many charitable roles in the community, including responsible corporate citizenship and partnership in promoting quality of life. It is proud to be able to support a wide array of community endeavors that help strengthen and improve the overall health and wellness of the residents who live, work and play here.
We are most interested in supporting projects, programs and activities that address the health needs of vulnerable populations in the hospital’s service areas, improve access to health care or related services, increase opportunities for healthy lifestyles, health education and prevention activities, or provide an overall benefit to the quality of life in our primary service area. Decisions are made based on consistency with the hospital’s mission, the hospital’s Community Benefit Plan and funding availability.
Requests for support from Upson must be submitted in writing

Upson takes its responsibilities as a corporate citizen seriously. Despite our non-profit status, we receive many of the same requests for assistance from worthy and admirable programs that local financial institutions, professional associations, retailers, service businesses and others often receive.
The challenge, then, is how to balance the measure of what we already contribute to the local community as a non-profit healthcare provider with our obligations as one of the area’s largest businesses and employers. Our budget for contributions is limited. Whether a request is for a cash donation, support for a local program or other opportunity, we will do our best to match our limited discretionary funds with community health needs.
