    Anthem Foundation


    The Anthem Foundation funds specific public health–related initiatives that positively affect conditions identified through their signature Healthy Generations program. they believe that targeting specific, preventable health concerns by making strategic charitable choices will help create a healthier generation of Americans. The Healthy Generations initiative uses innovative social mapping technology and analyzes public health data to provide a snapshot of the major health issues in each state.

    The foundation emphasizes its efforts in five areas, while also supporting behavioral health efforts and programs that benefit people with disabilities.

    Healthy Hearts: The Anthem Foundation is investing in preventive programs that minimize controllable cardiovascular diseases and strokes, including efforts to reduce smoking, obesity, high blood pressure and stressful and inactive lifestyles.

    Cancer Prevention: Prevention offers the most cost-effective, long-term strategy for the control of cancer. The Anthem Foundation partners with organizations that implement lifesaving cancer-prevention and early-detection programs.

    Healthy Maternal Practices: The Anthem Foundation focuses on programs that encourage and facilitate first-trimester prenatal care and help at-risk mothers commit to behaviors that reduce the numbers of low-birthweight babies.

    Healthy Diabetes Prevention: More than 25 million Americans are living with diabetes and a third of obese adults are at risk for developing this condition. The Anthem Foundation invests in programs that stem the spread of diabetes through healthy lifestyle changes and increased physical activity.

    Healthy Active Lifestyle: The Anthem Foundation supports programs that raise awareness for, educate on, and encourage new behaviors, resulting in healthy, active lifestyles that offer long-term benefits. The Anthem Foundation's support of healthy, active lifestyles for individuals with disabilities seeks to reduce healthcare disparities and improve access to care.

    There are two funding options: Program Grants and Community Sponsorships. Anthem Foundation Program Grants support ongoing community health programs with proven and measurable outcomes. Anthem's community sponsorships support fundraising events, smaller-scale programs and mission priorities that align with and promote our Healthy Generations program.
