BlueCross and BlueShield of Texas

Each year, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas provides financial support to strengthen Texas communities. In general, they fund more than 200 community organizations whose goals are in alignment with their mission of promoting the health and wellness of Texas communities. In addition to their primary focus on health and wellness, BCBSTX also provides funding for a range of other human services and community needs outlined under 'Funding Priorities.'

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas contributes to the community primarily through two types of funding: grants and sponsorships.

Grant funding is for program-focused initiatives or general operating support for charitable, 501(c)3 organizations which primarily support programs aligned with our health and wellness mission and providing access to disadvantaged populations.

Community Concerns and Social Service: Projects that increase awareness of cultural, education and social service needs, especially for children and seniors. Applicants must be able to demonstrate knowledge of community-level service delivery, resources and tools for disadvantaged/underserved populations. Your application should include your project goal, audience, initiative/activity, sponsor levels and publicity plan.

This funding opportunity only applies to non-profit organizations in the state of Texas. Do you have insurance with BCBSTX *or* better yet, do you work for this company?
