Philanthropy Program

Our Philanthropic Mission

  • To encourage servant leadership,

  • To support accountability for outcomes and objectives, and

  • To improve the health and well-being of others.

Our Model

Our Philanthropy Program includes two components:

College Scholarships

The Upton Hill College Scholarship program awards up to $2,000 per year (renewable) to graduating high-school seniors pursuing a two or four year degree in a health care field.  Applications will be considered based on a combination of financial need, academic performance, and a short essay.

In addition to the financial assistance, Upton hill will seek to build relationships with our scholarship winners and assist them through mentorship, assistance with making professional connections, and job-seeking support.

May 2019 Update! Upton Hill is invested in the futureofhealthcare, as a community partner for education and housing; two key social determinants of health. Last week, we honored this commitment by awarding a four-year scholarship to Minneapolis Washburn High School senior and changemaker Asma Abdisamed who’s headed to Saint Catherine’s University to pursue a career in Nursing/Midwifery. Our value of stewardship recognizes the importance of meeting the needs of today while planning for the successes of tomorrow.

Skills-Based Volunteering

Upton Hill’s Skills-Based Volunteering program seeks to encourage our staff to showcase their professional skills in service of a non-profit, whose financial realities may prevent it from hiring high-caliber talent.
