Building Healthy Communities
As a not-for-profit health benefits society and a member-based organization, we recognize that our collective success depends on lifting each other up to improve the health in the communities we serve.
We take pride in our ability to assist other non-profits in serving their local communities through our Health Foundation donations and corporate sponsorships, as we collectively work towards creating a more accessible, inclusive and equitable health care system.
This is also demonstrated not only by the way we operate as a company, but also by the way our employees get involved within their local communities. Our staff is passionate about making a difference through volunteering and fundraising for various charities and causes across British Columbia. Over the years, we have supported a number of organizations and campaigns, including United Way’s Period Promise, the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, Make-A-Wish Foundation, YWCA and the BC Women’s Health Foundation.
Pacific Blue Cross Health Foundation
As an organization, we are committed to supporting the communities we live, work and play in. Since its inception in 2011, the Pacific Blue Cross Health Foundation has provided over $4.5 million in funding to more than 300 different organizations in communities big and small — across all four corners of the province — that are striving to improve health outcomes for British Columbians. There are three types of funding options available for application: Kick-Start Projects, Partner Programs and Major Investments.
Reducing our Footprint
We take great pride in our efforts and commitment to reducing our impact on the environment. From receiving Radicle’s Climate Smart Certification every year for the past 10 years, to being named as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for three years in a row, being environmentally responsible aligns with our commitment to improve the health and wellbeing for British Columbians.
We are proud of our environmental accomplishments to date, and we remain committed to implementing innovative sustainability initiatives and contributing to a healthier planet.
