Giving Back

At UpStream, we believe that being part of a community, be it as an individual or as a business, comes with certain responsibilities.  One of those is to help make the communities we live, work, and play in better for the next generation.  Our experiences have shown that it is just good business to be a good corporate citizen.  UpStream believes that the health of a business is simply a reflection of the health of its community.

With that understanding, we have chosen to make our contributions using our greatest assets…our time and talent.  If your community organization is in need of assistance in the area of marketing and/or communications please submit your Request for Assistance to us for our consideration.  We review proposals January 1st and June 1st of every year.  We choose only 1 project per 6 month period.  The following are the criteria we use for establishing discounted rate partners:
 
  •  Which projects will benefit the most people of need?
  •  Which partner has the greatest likelihood of executing long term strategies?
  •  Which project focuses on improving the lives of Quad Citians?
Action without deliberate thought is careless. Thought without action is pointless.
