BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee’s mission is simple: peace of mind through better health. That means peace of mind for our customers and communities, and for Tennessee. We support that mission through collaborations with community, civic and economic partners. Our three main channels for community support are:
The BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Health Foundation, Inc. was established in December 2003 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation organized to promote the philanthropic mission of BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee.
The BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Health Foundation awards around $10 million annually, and starting this year, grants will predominantly support our new signature cause. We’ll have more information this spring about our 2018 plans, and in the fall about our opportunities for 2019 funding. Learn more
The Community Trust is a 26 U.S.C. (c)(4) organization that allows BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee to offer additional support to the communities we serve. Our Community Trust serves our neighbors by supporting charitable clinics, organizations dedicated to the prevention, early detection and curing of disease, and community-based programs for youth health.

Each year, BlueCross employees volunteer tens of thousands of hours to community service organizations across Tennessee. Employees serve on boards of non-profits, raise money and awareness for charitable causes, provide volunteer labor for community service organizations and much more to improve the lives of fellow Tennesseans.
Our employees reflect the diversity of ethnicity, thought, talent, skills and abilities we find in the communities we serve. And that helps us fulfill our mission.
