PILLARS WITH PURPOSE
The Upstream family of companies is blessed to have employees who give of their time, talent and treasure to enrich their communities and the people in them. With the creation of the Pillars With Purpose Benevolent Funds, we have created a way to amplify the charity efforts of associates and patients.
The Pillars With Purpose Benevolent Funds are the first tax-deductible, company-grown charity vehicle for our employees. Upstream has teamed up with The Foundation for Enhancing Communities to make our charity work go further into the communities we serve than ever imagined.
Financial contributions will support funds that benefit children, fight against cancer, combat homelessness, protect animals, give back to our veterans, aid missions, support faith-based charities, and assist our communities in acute need when disaster strikes.
This formalized process also will provide our patients with a way to give back—something they ask for all the time. To foster this, we will be installing Pillars With Purpose Charitable Funds kiosks in our clinics, where patients will be able to learn about our efforts and donate directly to one of our causes.
To fortify the culture of philanthropy across our company and in the hearts of those we treat.
We promise to do this through mindful stewardship of the resources we have been given. All work will be executed with a spirit of servantship and with a responsibility to better our communities and the lives of those in need.
There’s much more that we can and must do, but thanks to your generosity Pillars with Purpose already has enriched communities in the United States and around the world.
We have built a strong executive team to guide this effort led by Luke Drayer, Robert Cornett, Greg Bennett, David Harris, and Robbe Bendick.
