Giving back is at the heart of our mission
Extra Miles Tour
In 2021, we began this listening tour of all of North Carolina’s 100 counties. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (Blue Cross NC) leaders visit hospitals, colleges and other institutions. We meet with local leaders to discuss community activism, policy and how Blue Cross NC can better work to meet each community’s needs.
Blue Cross NC has passionate employees who are committed to serving our communities. Many of our company's officers serve on nonprofit boards of directors and committees across the state.
Arts and culture
The arts enrich our lives beyond measure and are vital to the health of any community. We’re proud to support several visual and performing arts organizations in our home state, including our recent support of a performing arts program for historically underserved children.
Chambers of Commerce
We strategically align with Chambers of Commerce across the state that help promote economic development, build our corporate reputation and brand strength, and provide business value and employee networking opportunities.
In 2022, we raised more than $1.4M for nonprofit organizations during the company’s annual giving campaign, “GivingWorks." With the company match, that totals more than $2.4M of direct impact to those organizations in a time when they need it most.1
Dollars for Doers
Dollars for Doers rewards employees for volunteering and submitting volunteer hours. Employees can use their Volunteer Paid Time Off (VTO) to serve their communities, or they can volunteer on their own time. Employees who record volunteer hours will be rewarded with a match of $10 per hour (maximum of $100) to go to the nonprofit of their choice.
