We work to improve the lives of the people we serve and the health of our communities through our foundation, our community relations, our associates’ volunteerism and sustainability programs

WellPoint Foundation and Corporate Social Responsibility

As a company committed to transforming our industry, we care deeply about the future of the communities we serve and are proud that our company and associates support organizations that share our common goal of addressing preventable health concerns through strategic choices. As dedicated public health partners, WellPoint gives generously through annual corporate contributions and the WellPoint Foundation, our philanthropic arm. The Foundation promotes our inherent commitment to enhance the health and well-being of individuals and families in communities we serve.

We focus our efforts on Healthy Generations, our multi-generational initiative to improve public health. Through local partnerships, sponsorships and grants, Healthy Generations is working to provide prenatal care, address health disparities, fight chronic diseases, improve influenza and pneumococcal vaccination rates and promote wellness.

WellPoint also supports an annual Associate Giving Campaign, for which the Foundation provides a 50 percent match of our associates’ campaign pledges to six national charities. In 2010, the campaign raised nearly $6 million in associate pledges and WellPoint Foundation matching gifts.
