In the Community

At BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina, we value the communities where we work and live — and we provide value through our corporate giving.

We believe in the health and wellness of all South Carolinians. Through corporate contributions, sponsorships and employee giving campaigns, we create partnerships with nonprofit organizations to help strengthen and grow our community. We listen to their needs as nonprofit experts and work to get resources to those who need it most.

Corporate Citizenship

The goal of our corporate giving program is to improve quality of life for all South Carolinians by creating a well-rounded community, improving health outcomes and increasing access to basic needs.

Throughout our history, BlueCross has supported thousands of nonprofit organizations. While we mainly support health and human services organizations, we believe a strong community is multi-faceted. By also contributing to the arts, education, economic development, civic engagement, and other causes and issues that impact our state, we work to create a vibrant, diverse community.

Employee Engagement

BlueCross employees have given over $40 million and countless volunteer hours in support of their communities since 2005, when we began tracking this data.

In 2023, BlueCross employees logged 21,713 volunteer hours to support established nonprofits, which translates into $690,473 in monetary value according to Independent Sector, a national membership organization that tracks volunteerism.

Day of Service

BlueCross hosted its third annual Day of Service on April 22, 2023. More than 400 employees spent their Saturday volunteering at 26 different nonprofits across the state. Whether they sorted clothes at the Cooperative Ministry, painted furniture at Killingsworth Home or planted flowers at the Therapy Place, they all did their part to help their communities.

The BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina Foundation

The BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina Foundation was established in 2003 and works to tackle complex health care challenges by connecting innovative community partners with grants that improve health outcomes for South Carolinians, particularly the economically vulnerable.

The Foundation awards funding through a separate process from the corporate giving department, and projects must meet specific qualifications to receive a grant. Any eligible organization interested in applying for a grant must submit a letter of intent first.

To learn more about the Foundation’s work or how to apply for funding, visit the Foundation's website.

The BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina Foundation is an independent licensee of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association.
