As a charitable foundation licensee, the BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Community Trust has a mission to support the communities we serve. We provide this support through charitable giving to those programs that promote healthy living and health care access, education and diversity, and economic and community development. Preference is given to programs that can be tracked and demonstrate a quantitative impact.
The Community Trust was formed in 1999 and began operation in January 2000 as a social welfare organization in accordance with 26 U.S.C. 501(c)(4).
Community Trust contribution dollars are based on formal, stated criteria that reflect and reinforce our corporate purpose, beliefs and principles.
Trust priorities include:
Applications are welcome, though eligibility and restrictions apply to each application submitted, and a committee will review each submission. Once approved, charitable organizations are required to follow through with both a Charitable Contribution Substantiation Report and a Contribution Progress Report .
