At BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York, we believe that good health is much more than the absence of illness – it’s about creating vibrant and diverse communities where all people have opportunities to thrive. In support of these goals, BlueCross BlueShield has developed the following charitable giving strategy.
We support HEALTH that enhances the lives of others in three ways:
The physical health of people in our region, specifically initiatives that address cardiovascular disease, diabetes, asthma, and obesity that are highly prevalent and detrimental to our region’s families, communities and economy, yet are primarily due to lifestyle or environment and thus preventable.
The economic potential of our region through programs and initiatives focused on young adults and families to ensure they have the highest potential for success and can be contributing citizens in our community.
The cultural and environmental health of our region through organizations and programs that are critical to stability and growth and whose loss would result in a significant negative impact on our quality of life.
BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York supports a number of non-profit organizations in our community. Read the guidelines on how your group can request our support.
As part of our mission, we support organizations that promote physical health, community health, and our regions’ health. Our employees also raise and donate several hundred thousand dollars each year and volunteer in the communities we serve.
