Supporting and encouraging contributions of time, talent and resources
Caring is a core value at Wellmark, and no program exemplifies our employees' investment in their communities more than The Wellmark Foundation's BluesCare Giving program. The BluesCare Giving program encourages employees to donate their time and money to qualifying nonprofit organizations in Iowa and South Dakota. The Wellmark Foundation then matches these contributions.
Personal contributions can be matched dollar-for-dollar. Volunteer hours are converted to a dollar amount that employees can then designate to be given to the qualified organization of their choosing.
Through this signature initiative, millions of dollars have been distributed to more than 1,100 nonprofits in Iowa and South Dakota.
- More than $11 million has been distributed to nonprofits in Iowa and South Dakota since 2012.
- 937 employees participated in BluesCare Giving in 2017.
- 39,864 volunteer hours logged by our employees in 2017.
- 659 nonprofit organizations were impacted by BluesCare Giving donations and volunteer hours in 2017.
