Grants to USA nonprofit organizations in multiple states for ongoing community health programming with measurable and proven outcomes. Funding is intended for traditional or nontraditional approaches to solving problems in public health. This may include the provision of services directly to people, as well as programs that change systems to transform health care.
The Foundation’s primary support base is spread across the states in which Anthem, Inc., does business. These states are: Arizona*, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
*Note the priority demographic for Arizona is individuals age 65+.
The Foundation favors initiatives that prioritize obtaining strategic, measurable results over isolated grant activities. For example, a physical fitness initiative that increases physical activity or improves diet in general as a key goal is less likely to be favored than an initiative that increases physical activity or improves diet as a specific means to reduce BMI for a target population. The Foundation's gauge for a successful grant is a measurable result that is evident within the grant period.
The Foundation wants to create the greatest human gain for the grant dollars it has available. Rather than try to cover many broad health-related needs in the community, the Foundation funds targeted grants that align with the signature Healthy Generations program.
The Anthem Foundation evaluates the projected ability of grant requests to yield meaningful results by asking three simple questions of each proposal:
1. What results will be achieved?
2. Will this organization deliver on its proposed commitments?
3. Is this grant the best possible use of the Foundation’s resources?
