Does your nonprofit organization need help making a difference in Louisiana communities? We want to hear about it!
The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation partners with community organizations to improve health and education throughout Louisiana.
We are especially interested in helping organizations that are focused on improving public health, reducing barriers to care for the uninsured, or conducting research to prevent or cure disease. We give particular consideration to organizations that address specific populations, such as those in rural areas, children, seniors, or those who are at risk and underserved.
Experts say that 70 percent of all disease can be prevented through changes in behavior. That's one reason Blue Cross invests in health education for Louisianians.
We want to sponsor programs that help our friends and neighbors learn ways to stay healthy and make wise decisions about their healthcare. Education-related programs are those focused on health literacy, the training of medical professionals, or the education of young people age pre-kindergarten through college.
We focus on efforts that promote learning and healthy communities. However, we will also consider requests that would improve a nonprofit organization's overall effectiveness.
These "capacity-building" proposals should address important management or governance issues that can be handled with a small amount of money in a short period of time. Examples could include organizational assessment, board/staff development, program evaluation or information technology.
Applications are reviewed each quarter. All requests for charitable contributions or sponsorships must be received by 4:30 p.m. on the following dates:
