Prisma Health-Upstate Foundation
The Prisma Health-Upstate Board of Directors has created a new philanthropic foundation – the Prisma Health-Upstate Foundation – to help mobilize our community to change the health trajectory of South Carolina. The Foundation has applied for recognition by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization, with operations expected to launch in early 2024. Until then, gifts should still be made to the Prisma Health Office of Philanthropy (tax ID: 81-1723202). We are pleased to continue working with donors interested in supporting the work of Prisma Health physicians, nurses, researchers, and other talented health care providers. Never has there been a more important endeavor.
Thank you for helping to ensure a healthier Upstate. We couldn’t do it without you!

Inspire Courage! Children’s Hospital-Upstate kicks off $6 million campaign
Children’s Hospital-Upstate launched a campaign to raise $6 million for a new pediatric cancer and blood disorders unit that will combine “whole family care” with exceptional clinical expertise and provide more treatment space in the Upstate.
The unit will care for children and adolescents with cancer, blood disorders, and sickle cell disease. Patient family suggestions were incorporated into the innovative design to help families feel more at home during what can be lengthy and repeated hospitalizations.
Hogs for the Cause, a non-profit barbecue competition and festival based in New Orleans with significant ties to South Carolina, kicked off the capital campaign by donating $1 million.
