until Service Day!

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts will remain open, but in a very limited capacity, to provide support for urgent matters and access to care needs. In order to have a greater impact on the communities we serve and provide all Blue Cross associates with an opportunity to volunteer, some of our service centers will be operating with reduced staffing. We appreciate your patience, and we will resume normal business operations on Thursday, September 17, 2015.

    Selecting Community Partners

    Service Day projects are inspired and shaped by the needs of our community partners. Non-profit organizations respond to an RFP describing the work they would like completed. A group of Blue Cross associates, who are members of the BlueCrew Leadership Council, then select which organizations we will partner with based on three primary categories: how closely their mission aligns with our focus areas, how well the project will accommodate a group of 60-80 volunteers, and the level of positive impact the project will have on the communities they serve. In addition to the community service project, each Service Day partner receives a $5,000 grant.

    Partnering with our Community

    Since our founding more than 76 years ago, we've been committed to strengthening the communities we serve.

    We know that there are no simple solutions to the challenges of health care. This is especially true for children and families in our most vulnerable communities, where health outcomes are tied to a complex mix of education, poverty and the physical environment. Building on our legacy of innovation, we have evolved the approach of our Corporate Citizenship work to align with our business strategy. Our hope is to create a sustainable impact on Healthy Living by supporting programs and organizations that foster Healthy Eating, Healthy Active Lifestyles and Healthy Environments. We look forward to building upon our knowledge and collaborating with our community partners as we shift our focus.
