At Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL), giving back to our communities is more than a corporate commitment – it’s personal. We are so proud of all our employees who give their time and talents to a host of organizations that touch their lives or hearts.
In 2013, 1,239 employees volunteered 19,315 hours for 211 non-profit organizations. Additionally, our senior leadership serves on advisory boards that help guide and develop organizations that represent a wide range of interests including the arts, economic development, education, health care and human services across Illinois.
BCBSIL also has a Matching Dollars Program. For every hour that a BCBSIL employee volunteers with a qualified nonprofit organization, that organization receives $20 an hour, up to $2,000 annually. In 2013, 72 organizations received $89,800 in matching dollars.
