Our Compassion is Our Strength
For us, that's not just a phrase, but a way of life. Our company culture is marked by a strong spirit of empoyee volunteerism and fundraising.
The centerpiece of our community involvement program is the volunteerism of thousands of Blue Shield employees who invest in making California communities stronger and healthier.
Blue Shield matches all employee donations to California based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations focused on health, human service, domestic violence prevention and awareness, and environmental, dollar for dollar, up to $1,000 per year.
In addition to the company's annual support for Blue Shield of California Foundation, Blue Shield also allocates a portion of our annual budget for charitable contributions.
To further impact the communities where employees live and work, Blue Shield promotes and facilitates board service by our leaders, including a Board Service Matching Program for employees who serve on boards of our strategic nonprofit partners.
Another way we invest in the health of our community is by providing academic financial assistance to qualified dependent children and grandchildren of employees of Blue Shield of California and our subsidiaries.
