Who We Are

Listener. Partner. Connector. Investor. As a foundation, we are fortunate in that we have a number of roles. We value each of them.


Our Mission

To improve the health and well-being of everyone in North Carolina


Our Vision

To help make North Carolina one of the healthiest states in the nation, in a generation


Our Organization

The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina Foundation is a private, charitable foundation established as an independent entity by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina in 2000. Over the past two decades we have been honored to work with – and support – organizations, government entities, and community partnerships across the state, investing $200 million in North Carolina through more than 1,300 grants, collaborations, and special initiatives.

While our mission has remained largely unchanged, our strategies and priorities have shifted over time, reflecting what we have learned both about our organization and what is happening around us. At our core, we are focused on investing in systemic changes that address the key drivers of health. We also maintain a commitment to give voice to people at a local level and meet communities where they are.
