Since our founding, we've demonstrated a strong commitment to community. By supporting programs and organizations that champion healthy activities, healthy eating, and healthy environments, the work we accomplish together will create a lasting impact on every person we reach.
We encourage our employees to use their skills and talents to give back while growing professionally. Through BlueCrew, our volunteer corps, employees perform community service during work and non-work hours. Our employees are encouraged to take up to two paid days of volunteer leave a year to offer their services for corporate-approved activities.
In addition to donating their time, our employees are also very generous financially. The 100% employee-funded Catalyst fund supports nonprofit organizations that help children, the elderly, and low-income residents access the health care they need. An employee team reviews the applications for funds to decide how to distribute them and Blue Cross matches employee donations to the organizations.
The Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation seeks to expand access to health care for low-income and vulnerable residents of Massachusetts. Over the past decade, the Foundation has given more than $41 million to support hundreds of community-based programs and projects.
Our annual Service Day brings all of our employees and senior leaders together to spend a day immersed in volunteering to support one of our many community-based partners. Read more about Service Day.
