Associate Giving Campaign

Each year, WellPoint associates give generously to nonprofit organizations across the country through our Associate Giving Campaign. A 50 percent match from the WellPoint Foundation increases the impact of these gifts. During the 2010-2011 Campaign, associates nationwide pledged nearly $4 million to support six national health-related nonprofits and their local chapters. With the WellPoint Foundation match, that total will be raised to almost $6 million.

Community Service Day

Healthy Habits Series

The WellPoint Foundation has teamed with nationally recognized organizations to develop the bilingual print and Web-based Healthy Habits series. This series, which earned the 2010 National Health Information Resource Center Gold Award, is comprised of four booklets: Healthy Habits for Healthy Kids, Healthy Habits for Healthy Hearts, Healthy Habits for Safe Kids, and Healthy Habits for Family Emergencies. All four booklets are available on the Publications page at www.wellpointfoundation.org.
