Investing in the Health of Our Community Since 2002
The Blue Ribbon Foundation of Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania has been helping community-based nonprofits deliver education and prevention programs that address many of the health conditions that can impair quality of life and drive up health care costs for us all. These community organizations and others recognize the value of preventing rather than treating disease.
The Blue Ribbon Foundation remains committed to its mission of helping people live healthier lives. We are honored and privileged to support the work of so many dedicated partners whose initiatives are addressing the most prevalent health issues of our time. The results are real and prove that wise health choices today produce measurable health outcomes in the future.
In 2014, The Blue Ribbon Foundation will consider proposals under three grant categories:
- Health and Wellness Impact Grants
- Health and Wellness Mini-Grants
- Access to Health Care for the Uninsured and Underinsured
Requests should not exceed $10,000, as we expect our grantmaking this year to be highly competitive. Please download a copy of our 2014 Funding Priorities Brochure for eligibility requirements and funding priorities. Please be sure to call Foundation staff at 570-200-6305 to discuss your project in advance of filing a proposal.
