    UpMobility Foundation is proud to be a longtime supporter of the Little Falls Public Library in our founder Martin Babinec's hometown of Little Falls, New York. The library has played an integral role in Little Falls over the years, as it offers a  beautiful, historic place for community members to gather as well as a variety of programs for patrons of all ages. UpMobility Foundation is a firm believer in promoting community building as it is one of our key giving categories, and thus we are committed to supporting the  Little Falls Public Library during the continuing fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

    UpMobility Foundation's support of the library helps to ensure that it will still be able to employ community members-- which speaks to our mission of helping others reach their fullest potential.

    UpMobility Foundation is excited to announce the rollout of the upgraded version of the Little Falls High School alumni website. Originally developed in 2005 as a digital alumni network through the work of our founder, Martin Babinec, the Little Falls High School alumni site now hosts over 3000 registered users. This latest iteration of the website gives Little Falls High School alumni the opportunity to interact with each other through posting memories, news, events, as well as sharing photo albums that can be shared with fellow classmates or all alumni.

    During a time when maintaining close connections is more important than ever, the UpMobility Foundation is excited to see how the LFHS alumni website will further strengthen the Little Falls High School alumni community. We are committed to continuing to build community in the Little Falls community and beyond.

    Our founder Martin Babinec's new book More Good Jobs details lessons he learned and key people he met in his journey to understand how to spur economic growth in his community.  While the book opens with a big picture view of challenges that communities face in creating more good jobs, it segues into a practical playbook for those who are interested in nudging their community towards becoming an economic magnet.

    More Good Jobs draws on Martin's background as a Silicon Valley entrepreneur--he is the founder of TriNet, a publicly-traded personal employer organization that has nearly four thousand employees and over 4 billion dollars in revenue in 2020. In his book, Martin emphasizes the importance of helping entrepreneurs start and grow companies as imperative to creating more good jobs.

    With remote learning becoming all but essential in the age of COVID-19, the UpMobility Foundation is pleased to help our longtime partner,  nonprofit organization On Point for College, provide college students in need with laptops just as a new school year begins.

    Founded in Syracuse, New York, (and now with a location in Utica, New York) On Point for College has helped over 10,000 mostly low-income young people get into college, including many who have already graduated from high school and entered the workforce. On Point for College also provides support to participants once they’re enrolled in school as well as after graduation. Access to education is one of  the UpMobility Foundation’s major funding areas and we look forward to continuing our longtime relationship with On Point for College through this new era in education.
