The Blue & You Foundation for a Healthier Arkansas is a charitable foundation established and funded by Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield to promote better health in Arkansas.
The Foundation anticipates awarding approximately $2 million in grants annually to nonprofit or governmental organizations and programs that positively affect the health of Arkansans. Particular emphasis will be given to projects affecting healthcare delivery, healthcare policy and healthcare economics.
The poor health status of Arkansans contributes to rising medical costs. By providing funding and working together with other organizations, the Foundation hopes to establish or expand a number of diverse healthcare projects that will benefit all Arkansans over the long term.
The Blue & You Foundation for a Healthier Arkansas is an independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association and serves the state of Arkansas. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization.
