The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC) Foundation is rooted in North Carolina and with that comes a responsibility we take seriously. Since its founding in 2000, the BCBSNC Foundation has worked to improve the health and well-being of North Carolinians by investing in people and communities statewide.
Whether it’s providing fresh fruits and vegetables to neighborhoods and schools or enabling more doctors to practice in rural areas, assisting everyday citizens in leading their communities to become more physically active or helping children see dentists at an earlier age – our goal has remained constant.
We gauge the success of our Foundation by the success of our grantees. By the partnerships and relationships we’ve forged with fellow health funders and nonprofit organizations. And as a result – by the thousands of men, women and children, who now have increased access to care; live in healthier, more active communities; and are supported by nonprofits that are more viable and better equipped to deliver their services.
Since our founding in 2000, more than $78 million has been invested into North Carolina communities through nearly 600 grants.
Together with our grantees and partners, we have made extraordinary progress in the pursuit of a healthier North Carolina. We enter our second decade steadfast in our commitment to cultivating healthy living in our state and excited to introduce you to some of the people and organizations that have inspired us along the way. We invite you to find out more at inspirednc.org.
As we’ve grown and evolved, so too have the challenges of health disparity and obesity. As such, the BCBSNC Foundation team remains dedicated to fulfilling its mission with a sense of purpose and a passion to change behaviors and policies that support healthy lifestyles. Working together, we will continue to improve the health and well-being of all North Carolinians.
