Strengthening Communities

Strengthening Communities one grant at a time.

As part of our community investment program for 2015, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana (BCBSMT) was pleased to contribute $25,000 to Benefits Health System Foundation. The donation helps support the life-saving care provided by Benefis Emergency Services, which includes the emergency room, Mercy Flight, a communications center and a trauma program that works to teach children and adults how to prevent serious injuries.

The grant was part of nearly $500,000 awarded to 108 organizations throughout Montana in 2015. Through the community investment program, BCBSMT builds partnerships by working with like-minded organizations. Funding decisions are typically based on five focus areas: nutrition, physical activity, disease prevention and management, supporting safe environments, and suicide prevention.

BCBSMT is proud to help organizations successfully reach their goals by offering grants and sponsorships to help create a healthy environment and improved quality of life for all Montanans. Initiatives or events that align with BCBSMT’s principles can seek an application for a grant or sponsorship Community Giving on our website.
