YES! You are in the right place. By way of reminder, Upstream has partnered with The Foundation for Enhancing Communities (TFEC). Through this partnership we were easily able to create unique to us charitable funds as diverse as our associate base. With the help of TFEC’s expertise in the administration of charitable gifts, we will leverage our giving and maximize our philanthropic impact in the community. Further, through this relationship we are able to pass onto our donors the highest benefits for charitable giving allowed by law under TFEC’s 501c3 status.
Pillars with Purpose Charitable Funds are the first ever formalized giving vehicle for Upstream Rehabilitation, Inc/Drayer Physical Therapy Institute, LLC (DPTI) employees to give to a cause of their choice in an impactful way. All monies contributed by Upstream Rehab/DPTI employees will go towards a bevy of worthy causes.
